Koch Image Awards now accepting submissions

The Koch Institute Image Awards, a collaboration between the Koch Institute and the MIT Museum, is now accepting submissions. The competition will recognize the extraordinary visuals that are produced through life sciences research.

Winners of the Image Awards will be displayed in the new Koch Institute Public Gallery, beginning with the Koch Institute’s grand opening in March 2011. From this location, they will be seen by colleagues and co-workers, but will also serve as powerful tools for engaging the general public in the stories of science and engineering research behind the images.

The Image Awards are open to any MIT students, faculty, staff and affiliates who have created images, movies, renderings, or graphics through their own research. MIT community members at the Whitehead Institute and the Broad Institute are also encouraged to participate, as are MIT collaborators at other universities, hospitals and private companies.

Submissions may be made from now until Oct. 31, 2010. To learn more or submit your own images, visit http://web.mit.edu/ki/imageawards or contact Alexander Fiorentino at afiorent@mit.edu.
