#PictureYourResearch – the 2017 MAXQDA Photo Contest

Submission deadline extended to August 20th!

Last July we held our first ever MAXQDA Photo Contest. Hundreds of researchers from around the world sent us their incredible snaps of life in the field and five talented photographers were featured here on our MAXQDA website, on our social media, and on our 2016 VERBI Christmas cards. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the 2016 contest, we have decided to do it again this year!

Picture yourself in the field! Working on a research project brings you to places you might never have discovered otherwise. You look at the world around you while asking questions about places, situations, relationships, and other details of life and society. VERBI Software is interested in your unique perspective and would like to invite you to share it with our global community.

Snap a glimpse into your life as a researcher and take part in our MAXQDA Photo Contest!

The top 5 entries will receive a professional print of their photo (large scale acrylic or glass print) and a box of photo postcards with all the winning images. The winning photos, photographers, and the photo descriptions will be also displayed here, on all of our social media, and be featured on the 2017 VERBI Christmas Cards!
