We invite graduate and undergraduate students, postdoctoral associates/fellows, and staff members (excluding Faculty members) of the School of Chemical Sciences to participate by submitting a computer-assisted or traditional scientific image designed to inform, educate and inspire.

The grand prize is $150. All winning entries will be prominently displayed in the School, be displayed for one year in the School’s VizLab, and join the Gallery of Winning Images on the Challenge’s website.


A separate category not eligible for a monetary prize is "Cover Art".
