SNSF Scientific Image Competition

This initiative has multiple aims: to show the growing role of images in scientific research, to reveal how scientific work is conducted and give a face to the researchers conducting it. The competition also aims to encourage the media to use more images in their science coverage and make them accessible to the public through exhibitions.
