NuMart Image Competition


Deadline for entries: 4 September 2020

NuMART is an image competition that runs at the NuMAT conference series, and is meant primarily for those who are expecting to attend the conference (but not exclusively).

Please share with us your most striking images of nuclear materials, in all their shapes, forms and colours! We will consider micrographs, data visualizations, or a mixture of both – provided that they are striking and (potentially) meaningful.

All entries will be judged by the chairs of the forthcoming conference, and up to 20 will be selected. We ask that the selected entries get printed in a format no larger than an A3 (29.7 x 42.0cm, 11.69 x 16.53 inches) and those will be displayed at NuMAT 2020, 26 – 30 October 2020 in Ghent, Belgium.

The attendees of NuMAT will then be able to vote, on site and electronically on the Materials Today website.

The winning entry will then be featured on the following issue of the Journal of Nuclear Materials.

Please submit the image as a JPG or PNG, with a size limit of up to 10 MB – we may request a high-resolution image from the winner at a later stage.

Closing date for entries: 4 September 2020
