We’ve teamed up with Jessops to bring you our Glasgow City of Science, Camera, Action campaign – a collection of images or photographs representing #STEAMMS (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Design, Maths, Medicine, and Social Sciences) in action taken by people who live or work in Glasgow and the West of Scotland.

Speak to a member of Jessops staff in their Buchanan Street, Glasgow store who will be happy to help you submit your pictures.

Alternatively, submit your #ScienceSnaps directly to the Glasgow City of Science Facebook page or, if you prefer you can email your hi-resolution image and the information below to ScienceSnaps@glasgowcityofscience.com

Just remember to add:

  • a title for the image,
  • who should be credited for the image (you should be the copyright holder or have permission from the copyright holder),
  • a consent form for any person visually identifiable in the picture
    (a template consent form can be found here:  Template – ScienceSnaps consent form (27.88 kB)),
  • and where it was taken – either GPS coordinates or a general location e.g. Pacific Quay, Govan, Glasgow will do.

You can also add a short description (100 words max) of the science behind the image.

Please make sure the photo has a minimum size of 976×549 pixels for landscape and 412×549 pixels for portrait.

All our partner organisations, photography clubs and courses and the citizens of Glasgow and the West of Scotland are contributing photography, descriptions and expert scientific advice to the campaign too.
