In 2019, the CNRS launched a partnership with the ACFAS to organise the French edition of La Preuve par l’Image, an annual photo competition first held in Quebec in 2010. For this third CNRS edition, researchers were again invited to submit their best scientific images. The competition challenges participants to showcase their research by means of eye-catching, thoughtprovoking images rather than words. In addition to their aesthetic value, these are also research tools that enable experts to interpret their findings, advance knowledge, and engage in science outreach with the general public. The titles, captions and technical descriptions supplement this approach, plunging us into the fascinating world of scientific research. The exhibition brings together the submissions of
the twenty prize winners selected from among some 200 participants by a jury of professionals from the image and science sectors.
