Poster Competitions

A poster competition will run for each of the poster sessions at BACG 2018 with a first place and second place prize for each. Prizes will be special this year so we urge you to bring your best poster yet!


Crystals as Art Competition

A "Crystals as Art" competition will be held, which is open to all registered delegates.

Submission deadline: Monday 11th June, 2018


Competition guidelines:

  • You must be registered for the 2018 BACG Annual Conference and must attend the meeting to participate.

  • Images should be related to crystals and/or crystallisation. As "Crystals as Art", aesthetic aspects rather than scientific quality will be the key elements in the competition.

  • Only one submission per contestant will be considered.

  • Images obtained by any imaging technique are allowed; multiple images can be combined into one composite image, image manipulation is explicitly allowed.

  • All images are to be submitted as a high resolution jpeg/tiff file of at least 300 dpi before the 11th June 2018.

  • A shortlist of 10 images would be selected by the meeting committee; the finalists need to bring their own printed images to the meeting for exhibition at the meeting and will be judged by all attendees.

  • Format: all submitted images must include a title, a short description of the technique used, the object that was imaged and any special conditions. In addition, the submitter's name and email address must be given. If selected as a finalist, the image and caption (24-point size) should be made ready for mounting on a sturdy backing board at the meeting. 

  • Do not frame your image!

  • The overall dimensions should not exceed A3 in size.

Please contact matteo.lusi@ul.ie with any questions regarding your submission.
