Ecology Image Competition - Closing date 31st May

Recommended Posts

There are now only a few weeks left to enter your images into the BMC Ecology Image Competition 2014!


Full details of the competition can be found here: http://blogs.biomedcentral.com/bmcblog/2014/02/13/bmc-ecology-launches-its-2014-image-competition/


The competition is open to all research ecologists, and indeed any scientist affiliated with a research institute. We consider all types of images from photos to data visualizations - and are particularly keen to see creative contributions from theoretical ecologists.


Can you come up with a way to visually represent your field of research?


Each entry should be submitted to one of five categories that reflect the editorial sections of the journal, with the winner of each category selected by the one of the journal's academic Section Editors. These categories are:


Behavioural and physiological ecology

Conservation ecology and biodiversity research

Community, population, and macroecology

Landscape ecology and ecosystems

Theoretical ecology and models (including data vizualisations)


If you're not sure which category your image fits into - don't worry, we can select one for you.


Winning images will receive a cash prize, and will be published in a special Editorial article in BMC Ecology. You could even be in with a chance to have your image featured in international media outlets such as Scientific American, New Scientist, BBC and The Guardian.


Please note that we can only consider images released under a Creative Commons license in which the author retains copyright but freely allows the images to be shared as long as appropriate credit is given.


To submit you entry, please send your image together with a completed entry form to: bmcecol@biomedcentral.com


We look forward to seeing your images - and good luck!


Kind regards,


Simon Harold
