Share this on social media:

Andor Technology, specialists in scientific imaging, spectroscopy solutions and microscopy systems, has launched the second Andor Insight Awards 2011 scientific imaging competition. Now in its second year, the competition rewards visually stunning and scientifically captivating images, spectra, graphics and movies.

The competition is open to entries produced with Andor equipment regardless of technique or application. Researchers can submit their entry into one of two categories: physical sciences or life sciences.

The winner of each category will receive an Apple iPad and benefit from significant publicity of their work throughout a range of scientific publications.

'Last year's competition highlighted the depth of cutting-edge research carried out with Andor products and systems by researchers all over the world,' said Donal Denvir, Andor's technical director and Insight Awards jury member. 'We look forward to rewarding more visually stunning and scientifically captivating entries through this year's competition.'

The deadline for this year's awards is 12.00am BST, 31 May 2011 and contestants can submit an unlimited number of entries. The winners will be announced at the end of July 2011.

First place for the 2010 Insight Awards was shared between Dr Neil Ganem, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School and Professor Mihalis Mathioudakis, and Dr David Jess from the Solar Physics Group at Queen's University Belfast.
