Calling Cambridge Neuroscientists: Wellcome Image Awards final call for submissions

Wellcome Images is issuing a final call for submissions for consideration in the Wellcome Image Awards 2010. Judging for the next awards will take place on 18 October. All images acquired by Wellcome Images before the 15 October 2010 will automatically be eligible for judging.

The Wellcome Image Awards showcases the most striking, informative and technically excellent images among recent acquisitions to the Wellcome Images biomedical collection. The Awards provide an eye-catching display of the wonders of biology and medicine along with an insight into the individuals and the research behind the images. See examples of last year’s winners.

This year's judging panel for the forthcoming awards includes anatomist, author and TV presenter Dr Alice M Roberts.

Alice said:

"I love judging the Image Awards - there is always a great selection of beautiful, surprising and thought-provoking images to pore over. But that makes it very difficult as well!"

Alice is joined by Dr Adam Rutherford, writer and editor at 'Nature' and presenter of the award-winning BBC4 series 'Cell'. Also on the judging panel is James Cutmore, picture editor for 'BBC Focus Magazine', and Fergus Walsh, the BBC's medical correspondent. Joining them is Eric Hilaire, science and environment picture editor at the 'Guardian'. Representing the scientific research community on the panel is Dr Robin Lovell-Badge; Head of Stem Cell Biology and Developmental Genetics at the MRC's National Institute for Medical Research, and John Durant, Director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Museum. Completing the judging panel this year is Catherine Draycott, Head of Wellcome Images.

We are keen to receive images relating to all aspects of biomedical science and human health, particularly those associated with the Trust's five challenge areas (including Understanding the Brain' identified in our Strategic Plan 2010-20. All images acquired by Wellcome Images before the 15 October 2010 will automatically be eligible for judging.

Our biomedical collection is used by academics and healthcare professionals for teaching purposes and licensed for publication and broadcast all round the world.

By contributing to this collection your images could be seen by a global audience and help enable the development of a comprehensive biomedical image resource.
