2016 Image Contest Results & Holiday Party

Last week, Open MIC @ Berkeley hosted a holiday party to celebrate the winners of the 2nd annual Molecular Imaging Center Image Contest. Members of the MIC community gathered to eat, drink, and be merry while watching a slide show of all 41 entries from the contest.

We had quite a spread! Thanks to Ben Smith for help with the beautiful food presentation.

About 30 minutes into the party, I had the pleasure of announcing our top 13 finalists, all of whom are featured in our 2017 MIC Wall Calendar. The top 3 finalists received a copy of the MIC calendar, an Amazon gift card, and a framed enlargement of their winning image.
