CISRA "Extreme Imaging" Competition 

The CiSRA Extreme Imaging competition focuses on imaging science and projects where
students make equipment that can produce images beyond the boundaries of creative
photography and video.  

It aims to stretch the imagination of tertiary students completing a supervised research
project as part of their studies and we expect projects may cover – but are not limited
to - areas such as medical imaging, astronomy or image manipulation.  

The extreme component of this competition could relate to the ’where’, the ’what’ or
’how’ the image is captured and manipulated and the prize will be awarded for the
equipment that produces the most extreme image.  

For example, the image may be captured inside a volcano, in the body, underwater or in
space.  It could be an automated response triggered by particular activities or it could
relate to way images are processed such as creating three dimensional images to better
identify things like a tumour, objects or movement.  

Up for grabs is $5000 for the winning student or student group and $5000 for their
supervisor.  The runner up will receive a Canon EOS 5D Mark II.
