The American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) has launched the 6th
Annual Faces of Biology Photo Contest. The competition recognizes
scientists who use imagery to communicate aspects of biological research to
the public and policymakers.

"Over the past five years, this contest has been effective at showing the
public and decision-makers what the scientific process looks like," said
Dr. Robert Gropp, Interim Co-Executive Director of AIBS. "Whether it is
sharing photos of biological research or enabling visits by lawmakers to
research facilities, AIBS is committed to disseminating information that
will guide informed decisions about matters that require biological
knowledge."

The theme of the contest is "Faces of Biology." Photographs entered into
the competition must depict a person, such as a scientist, technician, or
student, engaging in biological research. The research may occur outside,
in a lab, at a natural history collection, at a field station, on a
computer, in a classroom, or anywhere else research is done.

The First Place Winner will have his/her winning photo featured on the
cover of *BioScience*, and will receive $250 and a one year membership in
AIBS, including a subscription to *BioScience*. The Second and Third Place
Winners will have his/her winning photo printed inside the journal, and
will receive a one year membership in AIBS, including a subscription to
*BioScience*.

The winning photo from the 2015 contest is featured on the cover of the
March 2016 issue of *BioScience*.

Submissions must be received by 11:59:59 p.m. Eastern Time on 30 September
2016.
