    The Image of Research is a multidisciplinary competition celebrating the diversity and breadth of graduate student research at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The semi-finalists have been selected based on their submissions’ originality, visual impact and the connection between image, text and research.

    The Image of Research is organized by the Scholarly Commons of the University Library and the Graduate College, and is supported by a generous gift from the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics. To see all 20 semifinalists and for more details about the competition, go to The Image of Research website.

    Winners of the competition will be announced at a reception on Wednesday, April 5 from 4 to 6 p.m. in room 104 of the Illini Union, 1401 W. Green St., Urbana. Attendees will have the opportunity to view the finalist entries and vote for the People’s Choice award.
