Why was it initiated?
We wanted to prove that science is a journey to knowledge and broad understanding and at the same time we wished to show science as photogenic beauty that has the ability to attract people by its achievements and its ways of attaining them. Our aim was to highlight artistic and aesthetic dimensions of science as a special by-product of research.

Who initiated it?
The initial idea to organize a photo competition came from Science Lives! Forum. It was then approved by the Council for Science Popularization of the AS CR and endorsed by the Academic Council of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. The main objective of the project was to involve all the workers of all the institutes of the AS CR and encourage them to send in their photos. The selected pictures were exhibited in fall 2017. Besides, a jury of arbiters selected the photos to be published in the 2018 calendar of the AS CR, which can in this way present Czech science to the partners of the AS CR.

Who is arranging the competition?
There are three sections collaborating in the arrangement of the competition: Centre of Administration and Operations of ASCR, the Head Office of The Czech Academy of Sciences, and Science Lives! Forum.
