A taste of the future

Materials department technician David Horner has scooped the top prize in a national competition seeking the best photographic images that bring science to life in an original way. His winning entry – Today’s special, chips with everything – is a witty tableau featuring a selection of the advanced ceramics researched in his department, with applications ranging from medical prosthetics to telecommunications.

His first prize in the professional section of the Novartis and Daily Telegraph ‘Visions of Science’ competition is an advanced digital camera, worth £4,000. It will be presented by Lord Bragg, the University’s Chancellor, at the Royal Society in London at the end of the month.

Mr Horner, a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, has collected many competitive honours down the years, including a Churchill Fellowship to Hong Kong. His work has occasionally featured in the Reporter (440, 455).
