A Moment of Discovery 2022

9 Nov 2022, 3 p.m.

A selection of images from the 2021 competition

The Research and Innovation Communications team at GOSH/the NIHR GOSH BRC invite you to enter our Research and Innovation Showcase: A Moment of Discovery.

Do you regularly use microscopy that not only furthers your research but also produces beautiful and intriguing science images that you’d love to share? Or maybe your research generates data, imagery, or short videos? Perhaps you use photography or draw illustrations to capture what discovery means to you?

We’re looking for impactful images, photos, GIFs, short videos or illustrations that highlight any aspect of the amazing research, innovation and discovery that happens across GOSH, our affiliated institutions and partner organisations.

The deadline for submissions is 5pm on the 16th December.

Following a shortlisting process individual winning entries will be selected by stakeholder panels.


Winning entrants will be awarded with a canvas or print of their selected image, photograph or still from their video.

Shortlisted entries will all be featured within displays around GOSH, on the GOSH website and external content about the competition.

Please do get rifling through those ‘favourite’ folders, check with any relevant supervisor, complete the online form and send your entries to research.communications@gosh.nhs.uk.

If you are submitting photography or video entries, please ensure that you have consent of everyone in the shot and please do not include any identifiable patient photography.

While we’d love to get back to everyone, we will be in contact with shortlisted entries by the end of January 2023.
