The Brain-Art Competition
Submission Deadline: 11:59PM CDT, Sunday, June 5th, 2011
Award Notification: June 28th, 9PM at the Cirque du Cerveau Gala (during the OHBM Annual Meeting), Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec.
In order to recognize the beauty and creativity of artistic renderings emerging from the neuroimaging community, we are launching the first annual Brain-Art Competition.
Countless hours are devoted to the creation of informative visualizations for communicating neuroscientific findings. The Brain-Art Competition aims to recognize this often unappreciated aspect of the publication process, and highlight the artistic creativity of our community.
We are inviting researchers to submit their favorite unpublished works for entry. Both team and single-person entries are welcomed. The competition will have four award categories:
1) Best 3-Dimensional Brain Rendering
2) Best Representation of the Human Connectome
3) Best Abstract Brain Illustration
4) Best Comical Brain Illustration
Additionally, we will have a Best Hand-Drawing of the Brain “door-prize” competition beginning at 8pm at the Cirque du Cerveau Gala to be held on June 28th at the 2011 OHBM Annual Meeting in Quebec City. Materials for hand-drawing will be provided at time of entry to gala. A digital gallery containing submissions will be made available prior to the gala.
