Photo contest

This year we are launching a new initiative… a photo contest! The idea is to collect the best photos of your humanoid robots: funny or serious, working or broken, inspired by your research or by your favorite Sci-fi movie…

Collected photos will be displayed on the official Facebook and Twitter page. Everyone registered to these social media can vote the photos to select their favourite by “liking” the photo.

A jury will consider the photos that receive the more likes and select the best ones according to different categories:

  • best humanoid photo
  • best funny humanoid photo

The winner(s) for each category will be announced in Birmingham at the conference. 

To participate to the photo contest, please send your pictures to with the tag [photo_contest], stating the:

  • name, surname, affiliation of the photograph
  • name of the humanoid robot
  • title of the photo

Deadline for submitting the photos: October 15th, 2017 extended to October 20th!

Our Jury

  • Erico Guizzo (IEEE Spectrum)
  • Sabine Hauert (Robohub)
  • Giorgio Metta (Humanoids 2017 Awards Chair)
