SNSF Scientific Image Competition

Get your cameras! Giving Swiss research a face

​​The SNSF Scientific Image Competition encourages researchers working in Switzerland to present their works to the public and the media. Photographs, images and videos will be rated in terms of their aesthetic quality and their ability to inspire and amaze, to convey or illustrate knowledge, to tell a human story or to let us discover a new universe.

All the entries to the competition (more than 20​00 to date) are available in an online gallery on Flickr.
