Want a graphic made based on your research? For this year’s Real Time Chem Week, we’re once again after chemistry researchers who want to explain their research in easy-to-understand terms. To enter, all you have to do is write a piece no longer than 500 words, detailing your work and its potential applications. Note that it should be written so it’s understandable for an audience of non-scientists!

From the submitted pieces, three will be chosen to have graphics made based on them, and these graphics will then be featured alongside your written piece on the Compound Interest site during Real Time Chem Week, which this year runs from 31 October until 6th November. 

To enter: Simply email your entry to realtimechemweek[at]compoundchem.com by 23 October. Winners will be notified by email on 24 October. If you’ve any queries about the contest, you can also get in contact via the site’s ‘About & Contact’ page, on the left. Look forward to reading your entries!

Below are some of the graphics made from last year’s winning entries:
