Under the Coverslip 2023

Win this year’s Microscopy and Imaging Competition and Exhibition with your photo submission!

Be one of the select few to have your microscopy image displayed at the exhibition at 4:30PM 27th October at the Harry Brookes Allen Museum of Anatomy and Pathology, University of Melbourne!

Under the Coverslip is the largest original competition and exhibition of its kind at the University of Melbourne and has been running for 20 years.

Entries are accepted from universities and institutes Australia-wide and the competition is expected to expand internationally in the future. Previous winning images have been used in publications such as Cosmos and Farrago and displayed at White Night. Sponsors and donors generously provide the awarded prizes for the best three submissions and we are grateful for their involvement as this is a student led initiative.

The best 100 images will be selected and displayed at the Museum on the exhibition day alongside those awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and more.

Submissions are now open for all local and interstate research students and staff and close 5PM September 22nd. Only students are eligible for prizes. Click on the submission button below to submit your entry!
