Art of Neuroscience competition 2016

The 6th annual Art of Neuroscience competition is now open for submissions. This is an international competition open to scientists and artists worldwide. We are looking for striking visualizations related to the field of Neuroscience in its broadest sense. These can be images or videos representing actual neural data or tissue, but also more abstract illustrations that are in some way related to neuroscience.

The goal is two-fold: make the research from neuroscience labs more tangible and share something of high aesthetic value, while at the same time asking scientists to evaluate their own work from a different perspective.

The deadline for this year’s competition is May 15th, 2016. Winners will be announced at the FENS forum in Copenhagen this July.
We will award €1000 to the winner and €250 each to four honorable mentions.
