May 13, 2019

The staff of “Research/Penn State” magazine announces a contest to find a superb research-related image to be published on its “At Large” pages in the Fall 2019 issue. The winning photographer will receive a high-quality print of the image, suitable for framing.

A submitted photo:

  • must relate to research being done by someone at Penn State (any campus)
  • must be a strong horizontal so it can completely fill a two-page spread.
  • must be available at high resolution, at least 300 dpi at a size of 11” x 17”. 
  • may be a scenic, close-up, or micrograph; realistic or abstract; color, black and white, or colorized. See the gallery of previous winners (below) for examples.
  • may include a person in the scene, but should not be a portrait.

Deadline for submission is Friday, June 28, 2019.

You may submit more than one image, but be selective; please do not send a link to an entire collection of images.

Send your entry to Cherie Winner at Provide basic information about the image, such as where it was shot and the research it relates to. We’ll write the caption (which you’ll have a chance to review before publication).

Research/Penn State is a biennial publication with a circulation of more than 32,000, covering research and creative activity at the University.
