AMMRF Micrograph Competition

Bring your best, most beautiful and interesting micrographs to the conference for a chance to win cash prizes. To enter, bring a high quality minimum A4 to maximum A3 print of your image (image area to be a minimum of 16x16cm) and display it on the boards marked ‘AMMRF Micrograph Competition’.

Micrographs should be labelled with the entrant’s name, affiliation and contact details on the back, and the sample type, a title (optional), brief technique description, instrument and facility, scale information on a separate piece of paper. You can download and print a template for this here.

Images should be put up by lunch time Monday 3rd February and taken down at the end of lunchtime on Thursday 6th February. Prizes will be awarded during the conference and will be judged on scientific merit together with the visual impact of the micrograph.
