Photo contest

plantasAs part of the ISBR 15th Symposium, we will be running a photo competition so you can help us find images that reflect the beauty, scientific excellence and diversity of the work done within the society’s scope (research, laboratory, field,…).

We therefore invite all ISBR members and Symposium attendees to submit photographs for the contest. A selection of the photographs will be printed and displayed at the Symposium and may be used in the website or in ISBR promotional materials. Prizes will be given to the three best photographs.

The following rules apply to the contest:
  • The photo contest is free to enter and open to all ISBR members and all symposium participants.
  • Theme – New horizons in biotechnology
  • Image size: Submitted photos must be at least 2MB and not more than 5MB in size in jpg format. If a photo is selected, the photographer will be asked to provide a high resolution (minimum of 1600 pixels) of that photo available for printing.
  • Photos can be submitted to  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. before the February 28, 2019. NEW DEADLINE!!! March 15, 2019
    The images will be uploaded and available for viewing electronically on the Flickr “ISBR Photo competition 2019” group

    • A maximum of 3 images per individual can be submitted.
    • The title of the photo should be saved in the format “Title_Author.jpg”. 
      Photo details and a brief description must accompany all submissions and should, at a minimum, include: Identification of the subject, location where the image was taken and photographer’s name.
    • Authors must take responsibility for seeking permission from any person identifiable in the pictures.
mosquito The photographer/author will retain property rights to their work.  However, by submitting images, the photographer grants permission to ISBR to use the image on its website, social media, or other publicity items as well as to display selected entries at the 15th ISBR Symposium.

In all uses, the photographer will be credited by name. A first selection of images will be conducted by the ISBR board of directors based on attractiveness and theme compliance.

Further selection will be based on photographic merit and quality (e.g. composition, sharpeness,..) by at least two expert judges. A selection of the best images will be printed and exhibited during the 15th ISBR symposium in Tarragona.

Three prizes will be awarded: 1st prize: €100 in amazon vouchers, 2nd prize: €60 in amazon vouchers and 3rd prize: €40 in amazon vouchers.
