NSERC: Science Exposed Competition

January 13, 2016

Science Exposed is a competition organized by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) devoted exclusively to images of scientific research, in all fields of study. A French version of this competition, called La preuve par l'image is also organized by l'Association francophone pour le savoir (Acfas) in collaboration with NSERC. 

Send your best research image for the chance to win up to $2,000!

Contestants can apply individually or as a group. They must be involved in research either in the public or private sector. Eligible contestants can fit into any of the following categories:

  • Student researchers at the Master's or doctoral level, or postdoctoral researchers.
  • Research professors in a postsecondary institution or any other individual conducting research in a college, polytechnic, or university setting.
  • Researchers in a public or private research centre.
    • Contestants must be either Canadian citizens or foreign students living in Canada and studying in a Canadian institution. For a group submission, the group leader and the majority of team members must meet one of these two criteria.

    • Each contestant can submit only one image to the competition, either to the French competition, La preuve par l'image, or to the English competition, Science Exposed. However, multiple submissions can be submitted from the same institution.
    • Contestants whose image is not selected as one of the top 20 images in either the French competition or the English competition may re-submit it during the next competition.
