The APS Graduate Student Committee with support from Valent USA, BASF and Tianna DuPont, are proud to bring you the 2017 Art in Phytopathology contest.
The contest is an arena to showcase artwork of students and members in the area of Phytopathology. The beginning of the contest runs back to 2002 and since then hundreds of entries with unique creative expressions of art have been displayed. Historically, entries have spanned artistic media including photography, crochet, digital imaging, illustrations, and much much more! View last year's submissions.
The Graduate Student Committee would like to invite all APS members to submit entries for the 2017 Art in Phytopathology contest! Graduate student participation is especially encouraged. Art in any medium is welcome, but all artwork must be submitted in a digital format. The winners will be announced at the 2017 APS Annual Meeting and awards will be distributed in September. We warmly thank Valent USA, BASF and Tianna DuPont (Regional Extension Specialist-Washington State University) for sponsoring the contest.
Judges give each entry points based on creativity, aesthetic value, technical merit, shade and color, originality, and relatedness to plant pathology. Winners in each category are awarded a $50 check and the best in show wins an additional $50. Again, submissions will only be accepted in a digital format. Two- or three-dimensional art must be digitally photographed for online submission. All artwork must be original, related to the general theme of plant disease, and created by a current member of APS. Each entrant may submit up to three pieces.
APS reserves the right to use, reproduce, or publish submitted artwork. A slideshow of the digital entries will be displayed at the annual meeting right before the Plenary Session and posted on the APS website after the meeting. Please send your final submissions as an e‐mail attachment to email@example.com. Along with your piece, please also include your full name, job title, employer address, title of your artwork, permission for APS to reproduce or publish your submission, and a brief description of your artwork (include medium, dimensions, what the art depicts, etc.). Entries must be submitted by July 1, 2017. If you have any questions, please send them to Shashika S. Hewavitharana (firstname.lastname@example.org). This contest will not be possible without time and efforts of our Graduate Student Committee-Art in Phytopathology subcommittee: Karasi Mills, Bill Weldon, Haley McCown, Paul N. Okello, Jeannie Klein and Shashika S. Hewavitharana.
