Get Ready to Submit Your Images in 2011
To see what sort of images the jury selected in the first Art in Science | Science in Art show, take a walk through the Gallery.
The Call is addressed to faculty, students, and staff at Colorado Universities and their affiliated institutes.
We want works by scientists that are fascinating as science and compelling as art. This could mean a work product (image through your microscope or telescope), but also beautiful graphs, wildlife photos that tell a story, molecular images generated in a computer, maps, models, orů
Many artists make images that illustrate, illuminate or anticipate ideas in science. We are not able to insure original works, so you will have to provide us with the best possible scanned or photographic rendition. Again, see examples in the Gallery.
The rules are simple. Images must be the property of the person submitting them, or he/she must represent a group that jointly created the work. The entrant will grant the University the right to use the image in specified ways; in other words, he or she grants the University a non-exclusive, royalty-free license.
In fall 2011 the active submission form will become available on this site. The competition will be announced in all available media and via email at the Universities.
Images must be submitted for judging in a Web-friendly file format, which may be gif, jpg, png or equivalent. We are not able to accept video at this time.
If your image is selected for the exhibition, the organizers will contact you and request a high-resolution version of the image, so please make and keep (if at all possible) the highest possible resolution file. If your camera or computer can make a RAW, TIFF or large jpg file at 300 dpi or greater, that's what you should save while initially sending a lower-resolution version for judging. The reason we want hi-res files is that the next step will be for us to make large (up to about 12x18 inch) professional quality inkjet prints for the hanging show.
If you have questions about suitability of images or your eligibility to submit, would like to be added to our email notice list, or there is anything else we might help with, please email us. (ArtSci@ucdenver.edu)
The organizers are Helen Macfarlane, MA, medical illustrator in the University of Colorado School of Medicine, and J.J. Cohen, MD, PhD, Professor of Immunology in the same school.
