What is Visions of Science?

Visions of Science is a photographic awards scheme organised by Novartis Pharmaceuticals to encourage ongoing discussion about science. So, what is a Vision of Science? To the judges of the Awards, a Vision of Science is an attention-grabbing image that gives new insight into the world of science and the workings of nature. It may show something never seen before, it may explain a scientific phenomenon, it may illustrate scientific data or it may simply be an image that shows the beauty of science.

In 2000 we were awarded first prize in the best amateur category. Our image (Human Hand) was chosen by the judges over thousands of other entries.

Winning Image

Millions of years of evolution are celebrated in this image illustrating how humans have progressed over the ages. The combination of X-ray and satellite imagery highlights scientific progress and demonstrates the opposable thumb - the arrangement of digits that was important in the development of tools.
