High-end camera
worth 2500 Euro


submission until
31 August 2020


  • We are looking for the best photograph portraying plant phenotyping.

  • The winning photographer will receive a high-end camera worth 2500 Euro.

  • Submissions may include (but are not restricted to) research images, photographs of researchers, plants, phenotyping facilities, equipment and also creative and artistic interpretations of the Topic.

  • All short-listed photographs will be published by EMPHASIS and its partners and exhibited at various occasions.

High quality images and precise data acquisition with superior technology have been in our DNA since early beginnings of our company 22 years ago. We understand quality as the fundamental basis of any digital phenotyping approach. Respectively, we are proud to partner with EMPHASIS for this photo competition and would like to encourage all participants in submitting your very best images related to digital phenotyping. The plant phenotyping community – and broader speaking the community of plant researchers, breeders, and other plant professionals – regularly works with images. Images say more than words, and their importance is self-evident. You, the community, are the experts for image taking – so get the cameras ready and go!


Everyone is welcome to participate! The deadline for submission is 31 August 2020.


The EMPHASIS Photo Competition is carried out in collaboration with IPPN e.V.
LemnaTec is proud to support the competition.

Inspiration needed?

The EMPHASIS Photo Competition sponsored by LemnaTec is open, and we would love to participate, too. Of course, we can’t do so, but we will show some of our own images as inspiration here.

We bought a LemnaTec LabScanalyzer on July 2018. The instrument was delivered to us and installed remotely by a Lemnatec technician that instructed us about the use of the instrument. We were happy about the service: very good communication and excellent instrument set-up. The Lemnatec LabScanalyzer works nicely and is even more user-friendly than we expected. Almost no training of new users is needed. We hope to expand the uses of the instrument to obtain additional phenotyping options in the future, by interacting with LemnaTec.

We bought a Lemnatec Scanalyzer PL (today offered as LabScanalyzer) on June 2016. The instrument was delivered to us and installed personally by Lemnatec technician that instructed us about the use of the instrument. During two years, we evaluated and analyzed different species of plants under abiotic stress using RGB cameras and analyzed with LemanGrid software that is a magnific tool to determinate the morphometric traits and color segmentation. We were happy about the service: very good communication and excellent instrument set-up.

At the Bavarian State Research Center for Agriculture in Freising, Germany, we have been using a LemnaTec Scanalyzer3D (today offered as Conveyor Scanalyzer) system, which we named 'the moving fields facility', almost continuously since April 2013. This conveyor belt system has enabled us to phenotype simultaneously the above- and belowground biomass production of various crops, most notably barley, maize and potatoes. As such, the moving fields facility has successfully been at the core of various projects on drought stress, fertilizer reduction and plant-microbe-interactions.
