The Art in Phytopathology 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 hundreds of entries with unique creative expressions of art have been displayed since then. Historically, entries have spanned artistic media including photography, crochet, digital imaging, illustrations, and much, much more! View 2017's submissions.
The Graduate Student Committee would like to invite all APS members to submit entries for the 2019 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.
Please note that in light of the International Congress of Plant Pathology (ICPP) this upcoming year, the APS Graduate Student Committee is postponing the next Art in Pathology contest until 2019. We hope this will give you all plenty of time to put their best art together. If you have questions or would like to make an early submission or donation to the 2019 contest, please contact us. Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to continuing our long-standing tradition in 2019 with your wonderful submissions!
Judges give each entry points based on creativity, aesthetic value, technical merit, shade and color, originality, and relatedness to plant pathology. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.). 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-Jordan and Shashika S. Hewavitharana.
