Call for research images and movies

Do you have a stunning image or video connected with or resulting from your research? Perhaps something created by a new imaging technique, high speed photography or time-lapse camera? It can be anything from the nanoscale to the astronomical.

Following our successful Under the Microscope series, which has garnered over 1.2 million views since its launch in 2012, we are looking to produce another series of short films for the University's website and social media channels. But this time the images can be from the micro to the mega…. whether the images are from under the microscope or through the telescope, we are keen to see what’s out there. It can be a static or moving image.

Please submit your high-quality movie or photograph to for consideration by Friday November 14th, providing the following information:

·         What’s the story: in lay language, describe what we are looking at, how it relates to your research and why the public might be interested

·         How’s it made: what’s the imaging technique?

·         Who are you: where do you work and what stage of your research career are you?

Please keep each answer to under 200 words.

If the film or image is too large then please send it by WeTransfer ( and email with the additional information. (For files up to 10GB, WeTransfer is free and does not require you to download a program to use it.)
