Our Ocean – Unusual to Sea: Young Marine Researchers show their amazing work

  • My research – wet and dirty
    Here we call for photos of your marine field research. Beautiful sunsets at sandy beaches? Sometimes – but most often not.
  • Ugly? So what!
    Show us your research pet species. You have a special relationship, meet every day and know it inside out? But to others it looks “ugly”? Normal situation for marine researchers, here you can show it off!
  • Back to the future
    Got an extraordinary experimental set-up? Show us your fancy equipment.

Those are examples: You are welcome to give us a special insight into your research.

All we need are your photos, a title, and a background story submitted not later than 15 July 2021 (NEW deadline!). The best photos will be featured during the closing ceremony of the virtual ICYMARE 2021 BERLIN conference on 24 September 2021.

Here, you can find a link to the submission platform and some guidelines for the upload. The photos will be evaluated by four independent jurors which are well known actors in science photography and communication. Submit your photos, show them to the world and enrich the ICYMARE Photo Exhibition.
