European Researcher’s Night 2022: Memes contest!

Following the successful initiatives of AstroScikus and The Black Hole Week, we are preparing a meme contest framed in the European Researcher’s Night.

We propose an international initiative launching a call for memes related to X-ray astronomy: instruments, software, observatories, etc. For this event we are teaming up with @AthenaXobs @AthenaXIFU @XMM2Athena and AthenaWFI. 

A meme is an element of a culture or system of behavior that may be considered to be passed from one individual to another by non-genetic means, especially imitation.

Competition Rules:

* The deadline for submitting memes ends on 26 of September.

* Participants: everyone can submit their meme.

* How to participate: fill in this form with the required data and attach the meme (images larger than 4Mb will not be accepted); if you don’t have a Google account and would like to participate, please contact us by email (

* Limits: each participant can send a maximum of 2 memes.

* Prize: the prize will consist of a pack of merchandising of the projects and public recognition of the author’s ingenuity thanks to the publication of the winners on social networks and web pages of the involved entities.

* Memes that are offensive or discriminating will not be accepted.

* Selection: the winning meme will be selected attending to its originality, sense of humour and relation to X-ray astronomy. The selection will be done by a member of each entity and it will be final, it cannot be reconsidered.
