Enter your work and win a trip – Raith Micrograph Award now open for submissions

The Micrograph Award is coming early this year! We have decided to move the award forward and invite you to share your work with us now.
Everything else will stay the same: you share your work and get the chance to win a trip to a nano- or microfabrication related conference of your choice!

How to win?

To enter the Raith Micrograph Award, all you have to do is to upload 1-3 SEM images of your work produced using a Raith nanofabrication system or lithography attachment, describe what the image shows – and that’s it! The submission process is as simple as that. You will find a full explanation on the Micrograph Award Site.

Multiple submissions are welcomed, provided that each submission covers a different application and the micrographs within a submission all cover the same application. Each individual submission requires a new registration.

How do we judge your work?

Unlike other similar awards, the main criterion for winning is the scientific work behind the image. Of course, the appeal of the image will be taken into consideration as well, but all submissions are mainly judged based on:

  • The uniqueness of the nanostructure
  • The technical quality of the image and
  • The description of the micrograph

What can you win?

The first prize is a fully sponsored trip to a micro- or nanofabrication-related conference of your choice. You pick a conference you would like to attend, and we take care of your registration and all travel arrangements.

The second and third-placed entries will receive €400 and €200 respectively. On top of that, you will get the chance to be featured on our famous Raith wall calendar for 2024!

Some of the former Micrograph Award winners have told us their story – check them out if you want some inspiration?

Take this opportunity, show us your work, and win! The Deadline for 2023 submissions is August 31, 2023.
