NCI Cancer Close Up 2017
DEADLINE: January 6, 2017
We are looking for spectacular images of cutting-edge NCI-supported nanotechnology, whether within in vitro cell lines (e.g., microscopy) or in vivo (e.g., MRI, PET, ultrasound, etc.). Submitted images meeting the criteria outlined below must fall into at least one of these categories:
- Precision medicine
- Clinical applications
- Imaging and diagnostics
- Radiotherapy or chemotherapy
- Cancer biology
Up to 24 of the submissions will be printed as large digital transparencies and prominently displayed on the NCI exhibit booth during the 2017 annual meetings of AACR and ASCO. These and other selected images will also be featured in NCI's public image galleries (NCI Visuals Online and Instagram); shared through NCI's social media channels; and displayed on NCI's website, Cancer.gov.
Questions? Contact Cindy Lollar (firstname.lastname@example.org; 240-276-6656) in the NCI Office of Communications and Public Liaison, or Christopher Hartshorn (email@example.com; 301-435-3941) in the NCI Office of Cancer Nanotechnology Research.
Criteria for Submission
- DEADLINE: January 6, 2017
- Image format and size:
- JPEG format only
- Minimum of 3000 pixels per side
- Maximum of 6000 pixels per side
- Minimal post-production photo editing is permissible to emphasize compelling color, contrast, and composition. No illustrations or artist's renderings.
- You must be a scientist or engineer currently conducting nanotechnology research with support from NCI and the image must have been produced as part of your NCI-supported studies between 2014 and the present.
- If selected, your image will be released into the public domain. Therefore, the image must be original to you or you must otherwise have the right to the image. The image may not be under a publication embargo. You will be asked to sign an NCI Works Release form if your image is selected.
- Limit of 2 submissions per individual researcher. The submission form requires that you submit only 1 image at a time.
- Be ready to provide a brief title and description for each image: what does it show and what important cancer research area does the image represent? Please be as plain-spoken as possible in order to reach a broad, non-specialist audience.
- For postdocs and SS/SCs, you will need to indicate that you have approval from your supervisor or PI to submit the images.
