Biological research takes diverse forms — from field research to computer modeling to lab work. Help the public and policymakers better understand the breadth of biology by entering the Faces of Biology Photo Contest. The contest is sponsored by the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS).

The initiative is an opportunity to showcase the varied forms that biological research can take. Photographs entered into the contest must depict a person, such as a scientist, researcher, technician, or student, engaging in biological research. The depicted research may occur outside, in a lab, with a natural history collection, on a computer, in a classroom, or elsewhere.

The Grand Prize Winner will have his/her winning photo featured on the cover of BioScience, and will receive $250 and a one-year membership in AIBS, including a print subscription to BioScience.

The contest ends on 30 September 2011. For more information and to enter the contest, visit
