Andor Technology Ltd (Andor) and Bitplane, Oxford Instruments companies and world leaders in scientific solutions and visualization software, today announced the launch of the 2015 Insight Awards. This worldwide scientific imaging competition rewards visually stunning and scientifically captivating images, spectra, graphics and movies.

The Insight Awards are open to entries produced with either Andor or Apogee equipment or Bitplane software regardless of the technique or application.  Researchers can submit their entry into one of three categories: Life Sciences, Physical Sciences or Imaris. The winner of each category will receive a brand new Apple Watch (or the equivalent value in Amazon gift vouchers) and benefit from significant publicity of their work throughout a range of scientific publications.

“This competition has highlighted the wide variety of cutting-edge research carried out with Andor and Bitplane products by researchers all over the world," said Dr. Andrew Dennis, Andor’s Director of Product Management. “We are looking forward to rewarding more visually stunning and scientifically captivating entries through this year’s competition.”

The deadline for this year’s Insight Awards is 11.59pm BST, 2 October 2015 and contestants can submit an unlimited number of entries. Entries will be displayed on http://www.theinsightawards.com/ shortly after submission and the winners will be announced at the end of October 2015.

In the previous Insight Awards competition, the winning entry in the Physical Sciences category was submitted by Fernando Amat of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, whilst the Life Sciences category was won by Stephen DeCamp of Brandeis University. The Imaris category was won by James Kasuboski of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies.
