Biological research takes diverse forms–from field research to computer modeling to lab work. Help the public and policymakers to better understand the breadth of biology by entering the Faces of Biology Photo Contest.Â The contest is sponsored by the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS).
The contest is an opportunity to showcase the varied forms that biological research can take. Photographs entered into the contest must depict a person, such as a scientist, researcher, technician, or student, engaging in biological research. The depicted research may occur outside, in a lab, with a natural history collection, on a computer, in a classroom, or elsewhere.
The Grand Prize Winner will have his/her winning photo featured on the cover of BioScience, and will receive $250 and a one year membership in AIBS, including a print subscription to BioScience.Â The First and Second Place Winners will have his/her winning photo printed inside BioScience, and will receive a one year membership in AIBS, including a print subscription to BioScience.
The contest ends on September 30, 2011 at 11:59:59 pm Eastern Time.
