The Fourth Annual
Art of Science Competition
at Stanford University
organized by the Materials Research Society (MRS)
The Art of Science Competition is a campus wide event to celebrate the aesthetic beauty of science. Last year we received over 80 submissions representing more than 20 departments across the university, encompassing the schools of Medicine, Earth, Energy, & Environmental Sciences, Humanities and Sciences, and Engineering. Join the legacy!
An exhibition showcasing the best submissions will take place at the end of Spring Quarter, on May 29 from 4-6 pm. The deadline for submissions is May 22 at 5 pm. We will award $500 in prizes to the best submissions as determined by an independent panel of judges as well as a popular vote.
Submit art here: Submission form
All members of the Stanford community are invited to submit, and multiple submissions are allowed. The focus of this competition is art, and thus the aesthetic rather than scientific quality of the image is key. Creativity and uniqueness will be considered favorably. Images produced in the process of performing research, such as photographs, micrographs, and simulation results, as well as art inspired by science, are gladly accepted. Lastly, think outside the box – last year we received a number of amazing paintings, mixed media and audio/visual works. All submissions should be made through the link above.
