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


About the contest:

47 pictures were submitted by a total of 16 participants via Instagram and Twitter. 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. 8 out of the 47 submitted pictures were eventually nominated.

The authors of the 3 awarded pictures win a VISA/Mastercard giftcard (300NOK) and will be soon contacted directly.
