ESBiomech24 Congress in Edinburgh

ESB Scientific Image Competition

Can your research be captured in an appealing scientific figure or photo? 

The ESB encourages their members to showcase their work to the public and media! 

Submissions are accepted from November 17 to December 19, 2022. 

A panel of judges will select the final images that will be shown on the ESB website and advertised on ESB social media. Three selected images will receive an award of 100€. All submitters will be notified via email in February 2023 with those results.

Judging will be based on scientific significance, originality, and artistic and/or visual impact of the images and figures. All images must have a connection to biomechanics research; we welcome a diverse selection of images/figures that reflect the breadth of biomechanics research!
