We’re bringing you this bonus episode to encourage our listeners to submit their artwork to the Promega Art Contest for Creative Scientists. This isn’t for everyone – it’s just for listeners of Hello PhD!
The deadline is nearly here (December 1st, 2019), but you can still visit the contest page to submit a digital image of your fine artwork, photography, microscopy, or whatever!
Five winners will receive prizes by mail and have their art on display at the Promega Employee Art Showcase.
One Grand Prize Winner will win a free trip to the Art Show opening in Madison Wisconsin!
We called Dr. Aparna Shah, who was last year’s grand-prize winner. Her submission, “an image of an immuno-histochemically stained mouse brain slice acquired on a confocal microscope” came from a project she had since abandoned. Thankfully, that image was still a winner.
You can read all about her experience here:
So don’t wait! Submit your images today!
