Art of Neuroscience
Art of Neuroscience was born at the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience as a competition to harvest and curate inspiring images and videos from neuroscience labs. The goal was two-fold: make the research from neuroscience labs more tangible and share something of high aesthetic value, while at the same time asking the scientists to evaluate their own work from a different perspective. Art of Neuroscience now comprises a yearly competition and seminar, which acts to stimulate the dialogue between neuroscientists, artists and the creative sector with as common goal to explore their role in shaping and improving the human experience.
This is an international competition open to scientists and artists worldwide. We are looking for striking visualizations related to the field of Neuroscience in its broadest sense. These can be images or videos representing actual neural data or tissue, but also more abstract illustrations that are in some way related to neuroscience.
A first prize of 1000 euro, and four honorable mentions of 250 euro are available.
The 2016 competition received over 120 submissions, spanning 6 continents and 21 different countries. The jury (Paula Albuquerque, Jose Biscaya, Amy Robinson-Sterling and Nicolas Petersen) selected 1 winner and 4 honourable mentions. Winners were announced at our special event during the "FENS Forum of Neuroscience" in Copenhagen on July 5th, 2016.
