UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The staff of Research/Penn State magazine is looking for research images to run as part of the publication’s “At Large” feature. The winning photographer will receive a high-quality print of the image used in the magazine, suitable for framing.

Submitted images must relate to research being conducted by someone at Penn State and be visually compelling.

The photo:

  • Must be horizontal and able to fill a two-page spread;
  • Must be available at a resolution of at least 300 dpi. (Note: This is not the same as ppi.)
  • Can be a scenic, close-up or micrograph;
  • Can be realistic or abstract, such as patterned structure;
  • Can be color or black and white;
  • Can include a person but should not be a portrait.

The most recent "At Large" winner is a close-up by Todd LaJeunesse of the mantle of a giant clam. It can also be seen on pages 8 and 9 of the current issue of the magazine and on the Research Matters blog.

Research/Penn State is a biennial publication with a circulation of more than 40,000, covering research and creative activity at the University.
