A reception was held October 17 to congratulate the winners of the Salk Employee Photography Contest and celebrate the opening of the accompanying exhibition.

Last year, Salk employees were invited to participate in a photography contest that highlighted the Institute through their eyes. Inspired by themes such as "Reflections," "Breakthrough," "Workspace," "Impact," and "Light," contestants captured images of Salk from their own unique perspectives. Each month one photo was selected as a People's Choice finalist based on the number of online votes from the Salk community. At the end of the contest, a jury, made up of six employees from departments across campus, selected the top photos. The winning images from the juried competition and the people's choice are currently on display in the Salk foyer.
