CREATIONS | Science Photography Competition

The aim of the competition is to expose students to the diversity within research by:

  • Breaking down stereotypes of what a ‘scientist’ is and what they do.
  • Inspiring students to take an interest in scientific careers
  • Providing students with direct connections to the university

We also have some great prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

We ask students to send entries to the email creations@um.edu.mt
We’re accepting entries for round 1 until July 16th.

The competition is aimed at Maltese 14-18 year olds and is structured as follows:

  1. Students send in photos they have taken which they think represent ‘science’.
  2. 10-12 students are selected to participate in a workshop at the university.
  3. Each student is paired with a researcher and learns about the researcher’s work.
  4. The students take a photograph of their researcher at work.
  5. A gallery event is held, showcasing students’ works, and the winners are announced.
