In 2016, Canadian Science Publishing organized the Visualizing SCIENCE image contest. The contest seeks images that visualize scientific research. The contest is open to all members of the international research community.
Contest Participants can submit a maximum of five (5) images to each of the three (3) categories.
FROM THE LAB
This category includes all images taken within the lab including micrographs and photographs.
FROM THE MACHINE
This category includes all images created in silico (i.e., by computer) including data visualization, modelling, digital art, and infographic representations.
FROM THE FIELD
This category includes all images taken of and during field work including field sketches and photographs.
Please check out the Contest Rules (PDF) for more details such as Image requirements and Submission requirements.
You’ll find the submission form on the Visualizing SCIENCE webpage.
