We are launching an open competition for the design of the WICB Early Career Award Medal. Entrants should provide either one or two high-resolution images or drawings (one for the front, one for the back – indicating which is which) (see here for images of the Hooke Medal designed by Brad Amos, as guidance). The designs should reflect some aspect of cell biology and include the words “BSCB” and “WICB Early Career Award”. Entrants should send their images to Grant Wheeler (Grant.Wheeler@uea.ac.uk) by 1st August 2014.
The winner will be selected by the BSCB committee and announced on 1st September 2014. The committee reserves the right to chose designs from two separate submissions for the front and back of the medal and make alterations to fonts and the design (subject to the designers approval) pre-production. There is no monetary prize for the winner, however if the winner is a BSCB member they will be invited to attend the prize-giving at the Annual Spring Meeting (at the BSCB’s expense) and their winning design will also be promoted via the usual channels.
