  2. Research (images of your results such as cells, gels etc. depicting an aspect of your work) *
  3. Student Life (conferences, retreats, visits to other labs, what are you doing when you relax?)
  4. Corona Moments (quarantine life, how life changed since the Virus) 

All photographs must be accompanied by a title, a short description and your permission to be used to publicise the GGL. The submission form must be filled in, signed and sent back to the GGL office as a .pdf (scan) or .jpg (photo) in the "Picture Submission Portal" in order to be entered into the competition (alternatively, you can bring the form to the GGL office). Pictures will be exhibited on our website at the GGL conference, evaluated via online voting from all GGL members and awarded prizes of 50 € for each category.
