Image of Research is an annual multidisciplinary competition celebrating the diversity and breadth of student research at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. The graduate student edition is organized by the Scholarly Commons of the University Library and the Graduate College. The 2022 competitions are supported by a gift to the Scholarly Commons from Mrs. Mardell J. O’Brien.
The semi-finalists were chosen by an interdisciplinary panel who judged entries on 1) connection between image, text, and research, 2) originality, and 3) visual impact. In addition to the People's Choice award ($100), semi-finalists compete for First prize ($500), Second prize ($300), Third prize ($200), and Honorable Mention ($100).
