Art Contest & Cash Prizes

Submission Guidelines and Rules
Often members of the AVS community use scientific images/photos to convey information-sometimes these images/photos contain aesthetic qualities that evoke a personal, intellectual, emotional, or spiritual response transforming them into objects of art. The question then is where does the science end and the art begin? Let your fellow colleagues be the judge.
 
  • Submissions should consist of images/photos that complement the "science & technology" topics of the meeting. 
  • All images/photos should be submitted as low resolution jpeg/PDF files with a brief description. Please e-mail them to Della Miller, della@avs.org. Questions? Call 530-896-0477. Accepted images will need to be brought to the conference in a designated format; easels will be supplied for display. Only one entry per person.
 
Attendee Judging and Prizes
All images will be displayed at Equipment Exhibition from Tuesday-Thursday (October 31-November 2, 2017, Tampa Convention Center, Tampa, Florida). Attendees will have the opportunity to vote for the best submission throughout the week. First prize ($800), second prize ($500), and third prize ($300) winners (based on voting) will be announced at the Exhibit Finale on Thursday in the Exhibit Hall. These winning images may be used in future AVS promotional pieces.
