Photo Competition - ISBR2023

“Genetics for a healthier planet”

As part of the 16th ISBR Symposium, we will be running a photo competition so you can help us find images that reflect the beauty, scientific excellence and diversity of the work done in genetics to make our planet healthier. We, therefore, invite all ISBR members and Symposium attendees to submit photographs for the contest. A selection of the photographs will be printed and displayed at the Symposium and may be used on the website or in ISBR promotional materials. Prizes will be given to the three best photographs.

The following rules apply to the contest:

  • Theme – Genetics for a healthier planet
  • Images should be uploaded to the 2023 ISBR Photo Competition group in Flickr before the 10th of March 2023
  • Alternatively, photos can be sent to and we will upload them for you.
  • Photos should have been taken after January 2020.
  • Add a title to your photo and save it in the format “Title_Author.jpg”. 
  • Entries are made on the understanding that all image files will be made available to ISBR should they choose to use them on their website or publicity items.
  • A selection of the best images will be printed and exhibited during the 16th ISBR Symposium in St Louis
    • Please make sure that you retain the original high-resolution files so they can be printed at high quality if selected. The preferred format, in that case, is the maximum width of 1600 pixels and a maximum height of 1200 pixels. The file type must be JPG with a file extension *.jpg. Images should be supplied in the sRGB color space with an sRGB IEC61966-2.1 color profile.
  • A maximum of 3 images per individual can be submitted.
  • A first selection based on attractiveness and theme compliance will be made, followed by a selection based on photographic merit and quality.

Three prizes will be awarded:

  • 1st prize: $100 in amazon vouchers,
  • 2nd prize: $60 in amazon vouchers and
  • 3rd prize: $40in amazon vouchers.
