“Microscopic Miracle” by Amalia,1st place in the Electron Neutrino category in the Greek and International competitions.

The KM3NeT Collaboration has announced the winners of the drawing competition “Draw me a neutrino”. More than 500 drawings were submitted from 16 different countries (from KM3NeT member or observer states Australia, Ecuador, France, Georgia, Greece, Italy, Morocco, Netherlands, Russia and Spain but also from Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, India, Switzerland and UK).

The drawings, realized using various techniques and supports, have been judged based on their originality, the creativity of the realization, and the harmony with the properties and origin of the neutrino.

Three different age categories had been defined:

  •    Budding scientists imagined what an electron neutrino is like;
  •    Teenagers, that have already been in contact with physics, were charged with drawing a muon neutrino;
  •    Adults were invited to tackle the tau neutrino.

The results were announced during an online ceremony attended by more than 150 people. The winners in each category, as well as the drawings selected for the various contests, are now part of an online exhibition in the Virtual Neutrino Art Centre (hub.link/ZZwzhf7).

In the International competition, the Greek entries won 1st  and 2nd place in the electron neutrino category, 2nd place in the muon neutrino and 1st place in the tau neutrino.

Congratulations to all the participants, and especially to the winners!
