Who could forget Maxime Legallais’ 2015 NanoArt-award-winning photo of a red silicon nanowire in the shape of the red AIDS-awareness ribbon? After a hiatus in 2016, NanoArt is back this year and Maxime’s title is up for grabs!

The photo contest is organized by Fondation Nanosciences under the aegis of the Grenoble-Alpes University Foundation. Ph.D. and postdoc candidates affiliated with one of the 33 labs in the UGA, CNRS, CEA, Grenoble Institute of Technology, and INRIA network are eligible to compete.

Every month throughout 2017, entrants can send in a “nano” (≤ 100 nm) photo with a particular aesthetic appeal, and every month one winner will take home prize money of €150. In January 2018, the year’s twelve winning photos will be put to a vote online, with first, second, and third prizes of €800, €400, and €300.
