It was one key objective of this photo contest to bring researchers from the participating countries together to discuss current projects, different research methods, and aspects of fascination in the humanities and the sciences: it also gave them the chance to reach out to the greater public and offer insights into different fields of current research.
How to participate
Submissions had to be uploaded online in RGB, B/W, or gray scale as jpeg-files only. All entries had to include a short description of the image, its connection to the scholar's research, and its 'fascination' (150 words max.), as well as contact details and affiliation, and the date and location the photo was taken.
