The BioRender team is hosting its Annual Graphical Abstract Contest. There are $50,000 worth of prizes to be won and the winners, in a wide range of categories, will be announced throughout June. The BioRender contest is also an opportunity to connect scientists from all around the world through their love of aesthetically pleasing scientific figures.
BioRender provides software for hassle-free, professional looking science figures. In a quest to save scientists from endless frustrating hours trying to create diagrams on PowerPoint, BioRender provides a purpose-built scientific drawing platform. It contains thousands of pre-made icons and other tools to enable scientists to make their scientific figures more appealing.
To showcase the capabilities of BioRender and to bring scientists together – showing them they can put their creative selves to use in their scientific work – BioRender is hosting its Annual Graphical Abstract Contest with $50,000 worth of prizes to be won. The submission deadline has now passed, but the several winners will be announced throughout the month of June. The Early Bird Winners were already announced; congratulations Ailin, Patrick, Bailey, Sebastian and Alessia! But there is also an ‘Experts’ Choice Award’ and a ‘People’s Choice Award’, as well as awards for medical illustration and one for entries related to COVID-19. The winners for these categories will be announced later in the month.
We’ve just announced 600 semifinalists in our graphical abstract contest, hand-picked by expert judges! ?
