Contest entries will be evaluated based upon both scientific content and aesthetic impact. FASEB is seeking quality images that would be included in a peer-reviewed scientific publication or presentation and that effectively communicate an important aspect of 21st Century biomedical research. When viewed in conjunction with the supporting nontechnical statement, submissions should be visually arresting and clearly communicate a cutting edge biomedical science concept. Above all, the entry should inspire!
Entries will be evaluated in two stages:
- Stage 1: FASEB and partnering organizations will evaluate each image submission to ensure adherence to the contest guidelines and overall impact and select the top 50 entries. The same procedure will be used to select the top 15 videos.
- Stage 2: Out of the 50 finalists, a panel of distinguished scientists and engineers will each select their top ten entries. Then, each panelist’s top-ten list will be tallied to determine the ten entries image entries that received the highest frequency of votes overall, and will be announced as the contest winners. The two winning video submissions will be determined in the same manner.
