At the end of 2020 we ran our capture your research competition as part of our online course Research Writing in the Sciences. The competition challenged our course participants to share a picture and story of them conducting research. Despite the Covid-19 pandemic bringing many challenges to research last year, we received so many amazing photos that transported us around the world and showcased the incredible research of the AuthorAID community. We are pleased to announce that the winner of our capture your research competition is… Sanjeev Poudel (@sanjeevdevs) a Sustainable Development practitioner from Nepal, as our winner Sanjeev will get the chance to tell us more about his photo in an upcoming blog post. Congratulations to all our finalists, you can see the fantastic runners up from the competition below…
