National Nanotechnology Initiative Contests


The following two NNI contests, EnvisioNano and NanoFilm, offer you a chance to use images, videos, or comics to share what excites you about nanotechnology:

EnvisioNano (Deadline: November 30, 2018)

EnvisioNano is a contest for undergraduate and graduate students conducting nanotechnology research in the United States and U.S. territories. Students should submit striking nanoscale images that demonstrate how beautiful the nanoscale can be alongside thoughtful, concise descriptions of the research behind the picture and how it may lead to nanotechnologies that benefit society.

NanoFilm (Deadline: February 8, 2019)

Nano Film is a video contest for undergraduate and graduate students that are conducting nanotechnology research in the United States and U.S. territories. Participating students should submit short videos that tell a general audience about nanotechnology. How do you hope your work will help the world? What’s the greatest promise in nanotechnology? Where do you hope nanotechnology will make the greatest impact? What do you think is cool about nanotechnology?
