Enter Maths Eyes Poster Competition 2020

Enter our Maths Eyes Poster Competition. Shortlisted winners will be announced in February 2021. This year there will also be a prize for the overall best entry from each school. The best entry from each school will be announced at the online prize giving event scheduled for February 2021. (Full details will be on the website early in the new year)

Entries will be accepted from all those resident in the island of Ireland only

Entrants create a Maths Eyes style poster using a photograph taken in their local area and an accompanying tagline highlighting the mathematics that they have seen in the photo using their maths eyes.

You are encouraged to use technology to enhance your poster to make your maths more visible

Why not check out our short video to guide you to make the best entry possible.

 

Think of a ‘tag line’ to put with your photo (remember to save your photo as an original before making any edits) which will help others explore the Maths you discovered in the picture.

 

Once you have your picture and have thought of your tagline submit your entry to the competition.

Only one entry is allowed per person so make sure to select your best picture and tagline.

(you must provide a contact email and phone number of a parent or guardian or another appropriate adult e.g. your teacher.)

 

 

Guidelines on taking photographs:

  • You should use a camera that will produce a photograph in as high a resolution as possible (when saved the original photograph should be more than 2MB in size).
  • Save a copy of the photograph in its original format before any editing takes place. (This is important as if your entry is shortlisted you will be asked to forward a copy of the original photograph).
  • Remember, if shortlisted you will be asked to also submit the original high resolution photograph later so make sure you keep it somewhere safe!!!
  • Decide on the tagline you feel works best with the photograph and will make those looking at your picture use their maths eyes.
  • You then submit your edited poster before the deadline given.
