CamBRAIN Art Competition 2015: 'Untangling Mind & Brain' - Deadline closes on May 19th!

Scientists and artists are often viewed as belonging to different species. Do you want to challenge this misconception? Would you like to be an exhibited neuroartist?

Then use your creativity for more than just designing your experiments (or trying to fit your disconnected data into a logical, cohesive story for your thesis!). Let the complex field of neuroscience inspire you.

We are looking for art pieces that explore the limits of our minds, capture the beauty of the nervous system across species, or interpret neuroscientific data and intricate concepts in an ingenious manner. We're open to all mediums — from paintings, sketches/drawings, photographs and sculptures, to poems, songs, videos and animations. Submissions from neuroartists of all skill levels and research fields are welcome. It does not matter if you are an amateur or a professional artist, if you are working with nerve cells or studying perception.


Do not miss this opportunity to have your artwork exhibited in a gallery and to win a prize. We will be inviting judges who are interested in bridging the gap between neuroscience and the arts to decide upon the top 3 submissions, which will be awarded.

To register your submission please fill in this form online (or the form below). For this you must submit one or more high quality pictures (min. 300 dpi, 1200 x 1500 pixels, 1.5 MB) of your piece. For more details, please visit http://cambrainsociety.com/outreach-and-public-engagement-activities/

Submission deadline: Tuesday 19th May.
