Spanning four categories, the award-winning works will receive a 1000 EUR prize and will be widely displayed. Luxembourg-based researchers, collaborators of non-profit organisations, as well as foundations engaged in scientific activities in Luxembourg are encouraged to pick up their camera and document the – often unusual – environment in which they work and to share their passion with the public. Deadline to submit is Monday, 15 February 2021.
Photographs and images will be judged on their aesthetic quality and their aptitude to inspire and fascinate, to convey or to illustrate knowledge, to narrate a story, to engage the public to explore a new universe.
About the competition
The competition was organised for the first time in 2019 on the occasion of the FNR’s 20th anniversary. The awarded images were exhibited in Luxembourg City from September 2020 to January 2021, and printed in a limited-edition souvenir box.
For this second edition, an (international) jury will meet in April 2021 and award a EUR 1,000 prize in each category for the winning entry, as well as EUR 250 for each distinction. The award-winning works will be announced in June, displayed in an exhibition and made available to the public, as well as to institutions.
