BioArtography Image Submission Guidelines
We will not accept any pictures of whole embryos for exhibition. We prefer pictures of cultured cells, from any source (including embryonic stem cells, human or mouse). Pictures of mouse, rat, chicken, fish, worm or fly tissues may also be used. If animal use protocols were necessary in order to obtain the pictures, the appropriate protocol numbers and expiration dates must be submitted with the work. No human tissues will be exhibited (other than pictures from established cell lines). Since the objective is to appeal to the public, photographs may be altered in any way to improve their artistic value (false colors, overlays, distortions, various Photoshop filters can be employed to add interest). In some cases, however, the most beautiful work may be the unaltered form.
The submitter must include a short paragraph, written in lay terms, that describes the work and its biological significance. A statement of impact on public health is important. The descriptor should be electronically submitted and will be included with each photograph sold. The name of the submitter will be included with each photograph sold, or acknowledged in a statement to be publicly displayed with the picture.
We will require that the owner/submitter sign ownership/copyright of the picture to the Center for Organogenesis. The Center will be responsible for the printing, matting and framing of all work. The Center also reserves the right to alter the work (e.g., changing size, color, or other filters). If the submitter is a student or postdoctoral fellow, the mentor must also sign off on copyright of the digital image. No figure that has been published previously (or is expected to be published in the future) will be accepted for exhibition unless it has been significantly altered.
Price of work for sale
The jury (local artists and Bio-Artography Selection Committee) will determine selling price, sizes of displayed pictures and number of reproductions to be made. The submitter will receive a small percentage (5%) upon the sale of his/her photograph.
Photographs must be submitted in hard copy and electronically (CD) to Becky in the Organogenesis office. Please do not attempt to email the images, as they will be too large to email well. High resolution (≥ 400 pixels per inch) files will be needed for reproduction at the maximum sizes. The following sizes will be used: 5X7, 5X12, 8X10, 12X14 and 16X20. The Center reserves the right to alter sizes, or crop work to fit standard size mats and frames.
