Show your phd !

Let your imagination run wild !

Show your PhD is a competition in which you can combine your research subject with your artistic passion !

Created in the framework of Mons 2015, European Capital of Culture, the “Show your PhD” competition offers a platform for the cultural expression of science.

It is an opportunity for all scientists to put their artistic sensibility at the service of science : choose the medium that thrills you to popularise your research. The disciplines can be varied: drawing, painting, dancing, singing, video, music, cooking, macramé, humour… surprise us !

This year, we are accepting proposals in teams. This is the time to motivate your colleagues around a common project!

At the end of the presentation of your work, a grand prize will be offered to the person who will seduce our jury composed of experts in art and science. A participation prize will be awarded to all candidates.


Send your application to Show Your PhD before March 1st, 2024 via this e-mail address: mdc@umons.ac.be

Mention the name of the candidate (or of the team representative and other team members for group projects), your research topic, the type of performance you plan to do and a few words on how you think you can link the two.

The competition rules can be accessed here.

If you have any questions, please contact us at aurelie.vachaudez@umons.ac.be or marine.valverde@umons.ac.be

We hope to see you soon!
