The European Ceramic Society

2023 YCN Photo Contest

Are you ready for an exciting challenge? We are inviting you to take part in our photo contest!

When you are in the SEM lab analyzing the microstructure of your ceramics-based samples, take note of any interesting features you observe - grain orientation, size or distribution of reinforcing particles in the matrix, porosity, or anything else that resembles art, a geographic scene, an animal, or aliens. Save the images and submit them to us for a chance to win the top prizes! The photos can be SEM, Optical Microscopy, or TEM images.

The prizes are as follows:

  • 1st Prize: 100 Euros
  • 2nd Prize: 80 Euros
  • 3rd Prize: 50 Euros

Don't forget to send your submissions by June 1st, 2023.

We look forward to seeing your creative and compelling photos!
