NBIC Launch Biofilm Create! Photography and Art Competition
We are excited to announce that following the success of our 2021 Biofilm Photography Competitions, we are running a new competition for 2022. There are two categories within the ‘Biofilm Create!’ Competition; Photography and Art. A diverse panel of judges will take into account creativity, originality, composition, imagination used, scientific value and the overall artistic impression and Amazon gift cards will be awarded to first, second and third place in both categories.
The competition is now open and will run until 5pm UK time on Friday 14 October 2022. Full details of how to take part in the competition and supporting resources can be found on the competition page.
The competition forms part of our #BiofilmAware campaign, which works to raise awareness of NBIC and its research, and the many societal and economic impacts of biofilms. This is a great opportunity for members of the public, budding artists and photographers to explore biofilms in their everyday environments and is also a chance for scientists to look at creative ways of showcasing their cutting-edge research.
Dr Jo Slater-Jefferies, NBIC Operations Director said,
“The Biofilm Create! Competition highlights the importance of biofilms and the impact that they have on everyday life. This competition encourages us all to get creative and is a great opportunity for everyone to showcase their artistic talents. We are all looking forward to seeing this creativity flourish!“
