 Competition Rules:

  1. To participate you must be affiliated to the Institute of Functional Nanomaterials. You cannot designate another person to show your artwork for you.
  2.  Submissions are limited to one image per contestant and should be related to the science components of Institute of Functional Material Interdisciplinary Research Areas. Multiple submissions by a single contestant will be disqualified.
  3. Images may be obtained by any material imaging technique. They can also be the result of modeling and simulation, or can be obtained by combining multiple images into one artistic image. Because the focus is on art, the aesthetic rather than scientific quality of the image is the key element in the competition. Nevertheless, the images must have some connection to nanomaterials science.
  4. All images are to be submitted online as a high resolution .jpg file of at least 300 dpi (10MB maximum size) on or before 5 p.m. (ET), April 28, 2015. The submittal site is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Please include the submitter's last name in the title of the .jpg file. The IFN Investigators will select a group of finalists from these submissions and will notify all entrants of their status in early May. Finalists will then bring their entries to the Spring meeting ready for judging and general display. 
  5. Format: All submitted images must include a short description of the technique used, the object that was imaged and any special conditions. In addition, the submitter's name and e-mail address must be given. If selected as a finalist, the image and caption (24-point size) should be made ready for mounting on a sturdy backing board at the meeting. Do not frame your image! Overall dimensions should not exceed 22x28 inches. Mounting boards of this size, along with display easels and appropriate mounting materials, will be provided by IFN
