News: Cool pics wanted
The Wellcome Trust
Photo Library, as part
of its continuing drive to acquire new and exiting images to add to its
collection, is offering a prize of 100 for the best image at the Sussex
meeting and 50 for the runner up. Any post-doc or PhD student as well
as lab heads who have an image (could be a shot of a whole embryo or a
stunning confocal or EM shot, or whatever) which is either aesthetically
gorgeous or tells a cool scientific tale (or both) should bring it to
Sussex for entry into the Cool Pics competition.
You should provide
both a print for display and the original (either the slide or digital
file). It would be really good if you could also bring a brief description
of the image content. Jenny Whiting from the Wellcome Trust Photo Library
will be at the meeting and will judge the images. She will also be selecting
images for the library from all entries submitted so bring as much as
The Photo Library
provides images to both the academic community and the media and any pictures
used commercially will earn royalties. You do need to be the copyright
holder of the images to contribute them to the library which unfortunately
means no published images (similar ones are OK).
For more info,
contact Jenny Whiting on firstname.lastname@example.org or on 020 7611 8347 .
