Enter the Faces of Biology Photo Contest for your chance to win $250 and to
have your photo appear on the cover of the journal *BioScience*.

The competition, sponsored by the American Institute of Biological Sciences
(AIBS), recognizes scientists who use imagery to communicate aspects of
biological research to the public and policymakers.

“This AIBS initiative is one of the ways scientists can show the public and
policymakers what it looks like to do science,” said Dr. Robert Gropp,
Co-Executive Director of AIBS. “AIBS is committed to promoting informed
decision-making, which requires an engaged public and policymakers. The
photo competition is just one of the ways we endeavor to help the public
gain a better understanding of biological research.”

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 2016 contest is featured on the cover of the
April 2017 issue of *BioScience*.

Submissions must be received by 11:59:59 p.m. Eastern Time on 1 October
2017.
