This new national contest will recognize outstanding achievement by scientists, engineers, and visual information practitioners in the use of visual media to promote understanding of research results.
The contest is open to individual scientists, engineers, visual information practitioners, and scientific teams --including technicians and support team members-- who produce or commission photographs, illustrations, animations, interactive media, video sequences or computer graphics for research.
