Science Photo Competition


**Update 16/05/2010: The competition is now closed. Results will be announced shortly**
To celebrate the re-design of the Communicate Science blog, I've decided to launch a science photo competition.

Anyone can enter and there are no categories other than SCIENCE - once you think the photo has something to do with science, that's good enough for me. 

Email you entry to this address and include your contact details along with a title and brief description of the photo. I'll feature some of the photos on the blog and the best (as judged by an elite panel of experts, I think) will receive a copy of the brilliant Reading the Irish Landscape by Frank Mitchell and Michael Ryan.
Of Frank Mitchell and the book in question: "Perhaps the last of the great Irish Scientists of the natural world for whom the term 'natural historian' is genuinely appropriate...Reading the Irish Landscape, has been extensively remodelled, expanded, updated and lavishly illustrated."


Terms & conditions (no nasty ones):
1. The photo must be your own work.
2. The photo remains yours. I may use it occasionally on this blog as part of the competition, but you retain ownership and copyright.
3. Judges decision is final; it's just a bit of fun!









This competition is listed on:

Thanks! This sounds like fun.

Is there a deadline? A min/max size for the photo?

Hi Susan,
The call for entries will be open until Saturday 15th May.
There is no max/min size for images, as long as they are suitable for use on this blog.

Get your entries in soon!
