Art in Phytopathology is a competition sponsored by the Graduate Student Committee and BASF at the Annual Meeting. The competition is designed so students and members of APS can showcase their artwork in the area of Phytopathology. Last year at the 2012 Annual Meeting, 36 works of art were entered into the competition. The artwork included pictures of diseases in the field, microscopy images, and hand drawings and paintings.
The 2013 competition artworks will be separated using the following categories:
All APS members are welcome to submit artwork, and graduate student participation is especially encouraged. Art in any medium is welcome, but all artwork is submitted in a digital format. The winners for 2013 will be announced at the 2013 APS-MSA Joint Meeting in Austin, Texas, and awards will be distributed in September. Thank you BASF for funding this competition for four years in a row!
Rules for Entry: Submissions will only be accepted in a digital format. Two- or three- dimensional art must be digitally photographed for online submission. Entries must be in JPEG format with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi. All artwork must be original, related to the general theme of plant disease, and have been created by a current member of APS.
