The first edition of our #LearningBiology2016 photo contest ended on March 15th. The awarded picture was submitted this time by a Twitter user. Congratulations to Heidi Nedberg (@H3idijn) who wins a Visa giftcard of a value of 300NOK.

We would like to congratulate the winner and we invite everyone to send pictures to #LearningBiology2016 as the contest goes on. The next nomination round will occur in June 2016, so… back to your cameras and smartphones!!!

… and remember the theme of the contest: “Learning Biology”.


About the contest:

22 pictures were submitted by a total of 10 participants via Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. All pictures eventually met the selection criteria published on the page of the contest and were examined by the jury.

Our jury was composed of 3 members:
– Jonathan Soulé, coordinator (University of Bergen)
– Anne-Laure Simonelli, co-coordinator (University of Bergen),
– Janne E. Søreide (University Centre in Svalbard).

The three factors that the jury members considered when reviewing the pictures were:
– relevance to the topic “Learning Biology”,
– esthetics,
– picture quality.

All jury members were given the possibility to vote for up to 3 pictures to be ranked from first to third. The pictures that collected at least 1 vote were nominated. Only 1 out of the 22 selected pictures was eventually nominated.

The author of the awarded picture wins a VISA giftcard (300NOK) and will be soon contacted directly via email.
