About the contest...

The CeMEB Photo Contest is initiated by Emma Berdan, postdoc in CeMEB and organized together with Pierre De Wit.

The competition is open for both researchers and the public, and one of the aims with the contest is to create meeting places between academia and the public. Therefore, there will be open galleries both at the Aquarium at the Lovén centre Tjärnö and in the shopping mall Nordstan, Gothenburg, during Västerhavsveckan 2017.

 In 2017 we have the following categories: 

  • Scientists/Future Scientists at work
  • Nature/Marine Ecosystems
  • Beyond the naked eye

This is the second year we have the competition. See the winners from 2016 here.

The prizes 2017 are kindly granted by the Centre for Marine Evolutionary Biology and the Department of Marine Sciences
