Do you have a favorite photomicrograph you’d like others to see? It could be the winner!

Buchsbaum Photomicrography Contest Rules

  1. There are separate categories for color and black-and-white photomicrographs. In 2019, we added a third category for micro-CT images.

  2. Photomicrographs taken using microCT, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and any kind of light microscopy, including confocal scanning laser microscopy, are eligible. Entries should be original images, created by the person submitting them (i.e., the image author).

  3. The contest is open to all SICB meeting participants; up to 3 entries each. AMS membership is welcomed but not required.

  4. Submissions must be unmounted prints, with maximum dimensions of 8 X 10 inches, unlabeled and unsigned. A single line of information identifying the subject (e.g., “Mouthparts of a mite”) and stating the microscopical technique (e.g., “SEM”) should be below the photograph.

  5. See the meeting website for details of the timing of submission, voting, and announcement of award winners. Entries may only be made at the meeting.

  6. The author retains all rights to the entry. The author grants permission to AMS to publish the image in Invertebrate Biology and on the AMS website. If the image has been published previously, the author should obtain appropriate permission from the holder of the copyright.
