Images with Impact Competition 2016

We challenged researchers and professional support staff within the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences to submit images that illustrate their research, the impact of their research or an image that showcases the College?

2016 saw us launch the 3rd year of our Images with Impact competition and as in previous years, we were overwhelmed with the volume and standard of entries.

The competition results were announced at College Christmas Council on 12th December. The winning image was submitted by Ed Hutchinson, a Research Fellow from the MRC-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research within the Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation.

Ed’s image “You, in the Flu” (left) was the overall favourite of the competition judges and a donation was made to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) charity on Ed’s behalf. The image was incorporated into this year's MVLS Christmas card (right).

Do you have any images that illustrate your research, or the impact of your research?  Or perhaps you have exciting images that showcase the College of Medical Veterinary and Life Sciences? Could you create a stunning image which would help visualise your work and its impact, or display the College to its best advantage?  If so, please send them to
