The Committee for Research at Karolinska Institutet hereby invites nominations to the Lennart Nilsson Award 2019.

The Lennart Nilsson foundation was established in 1998 in order to bestow an award in recognition of the world-renowned Swedish photographer Lennart Nilsson and his extraordinary body of work. Its main aim is to promote education, training and research within the medical, biological and engineering sciences through the use of images. This is achieved through the Lennart Nilsson Award, an international award bestowed annually upon an individual in recognition of outstanding contributions within the realm of scientific photography.

The nominees should fulfil the following criteria:

  • Work in the spirit of Lennart Nilsson
  • Make the invisible visible
  • Reveal sciences to the world in beautiful, unique and powerful ways
  • Visualize a scientific break through
  • Image reality in a surprising way

You are invited to nominate candidates to the Lennart Nilsson Award. Candidates should be active mainly in the Life Sciences and use pictorial representation as an explanatory medium. Users of animation technology are also eligible.

The enclosed nomination form should be filled out and sent in together with the candidate’s CV, bibliography, articles, technical descriptions and pictorial material. Up to three letters with references and comments from experts may be included.

Please attach the material as one PDF-file if possible and send to fonder@ki.se no later than Friday May 3 2019. If you need to submit a larger file, you can send an e-mail to us for assistance.

The awarded amount is SEK 100 000 and the prize ceremony will take place in connection with the installation ceremony for new professors at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden October 17th.
