National Science Week Competition

Win Stuff

The National Science Week Photo Competition is now closed. Thanks for all your fantastic entries!

National Science Week, which ran between 10 and 18 August this year, is dedicated to exploring the wonders of science. Curtin University is joining in the celebrations by running a photo competition to find the best element-themed photos.

Earth, water, air and fire are the four categories for the competition. These four elements are what people from 450BC believed everything around them was made up of, and was the basis of science for 2,000 years. Every breath you take, every beverage you drink, every match you light and every step you take you are interacting with the elements.

Judged by a panel of four scientist judges, winners for the Curtin National Science Week Photo Competition are as follows:

Best Earth Photo: "Station Life" by Harriet Swale

Best Water Photo: "Bubble Jellyfish" by Kate Greenfeld

Best Fire Photo: "Glowing Body" by Carisse Antonas

Best Air Photo: "Kitesurfer" by Roman Trubka

Best Under 18 entrant photo: "Sparkler fun" by Lauren Galati

People's Choice Award: "Busselton Jetty" by Desmond Hong Wei Wong
