ChemiSTEAM – Putting the A(rt) in STEM

Discussions about chemistry often focus on the utility of our discipline. However, chemistry is not merely useful; it is also beautiful.

As a celebration of the beauty of chemistry, the IUPAC | CCCE 2021 Congress will feature a juried exhibition of original chemistry-inspired art. We welcome submissions, including both static (i.e., electronic images) and dynamic (i.e., gifs and short videos) works (in jpeg, png, or mp4. format) from all areas of chemistry, including images previously shared on social media.

This contest is open to all members of the Canadian Society for Chemistry (CSC), Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC), or registered participants of the IUPAC | CCCE 2021 congress occurring virtually. Contestants must be 18 years or older. The contestant must be the creator of the image and must retain its copyright. Images/videos that have previously been submitted to another image/video contest or that have appeared in peer-reviewed publications are not eligible. Contestants are welcome to submit images that have previously been posted to social media sites.

Images will be judged by a jury of experts and will be evaluated based on their quality, creativity, and relevance to chemistry. Winning entries will be featured in an online photo exhibit starting in August 2021.

See details & submit your artwork to the ChemiSTEAM contest! — submission deadline June 15, 2021
