Capturing Cancer 2021: Oncology Central Photography Competition


Capturing Cancer 2021

Get ready for the third year of the Capturing Cancer: Oncology Central Photography Competition!

The Capturing Cancer: Oncology Central Photography Competition is an opportunity for all clinicians and cancer researchers to share their work using imagery; from images that can only be observed with the aid of a microscope to photos demonstrating key themes in clinical oncology.

However, this year has been different. The pandemic has changed the cancer research field, and we know that many of you will have seen the impact firsthand. Therefore, this year, not only do we want to see photos of your research from the lab, we want to see your research from the sofa, your new clinical realities, your inventive ‘working from home’ set-ups and new lab rules!

We welcome entries that explore oncology from the molecular to clinical level. If you are looking for some inspiration, why not view our 2020 finalists?

Prizes

  • US $100 Amazon voucher
  • A total of 35% off Open Access when you submit a paper to the journal Future Oncology or 50% off Open Access when you submit a paper to one of our Oncology Management journals
  • An interview with the photographer about the story behind the photo

All finalists will have their photo featured on Oncology Central, and the winner will have theirs showcased on the homepage.

How can I enter?

  • To enter, email your image to the Oncology Central Senior Editor, Rachel Jenkins, at [email protected], with the subject line ‘Photo Competition’.
  • Image needs to be saved in the file format ‘photographerfullname.jpeg’ (or .jpg) and submitted with an image title and caption (min 25 words, max 150) putting the research into context. The caption must be comprehensible to any professional in oncology and will be taken into consideration by the judges when making their decision.
  • Images should be a minimum of 300dpi. Images should be of the highest quality available and saved as JPEG/JPG files. Very large images should be sent by WeTransfer.
  • Each entrant can submit up to three images. Judging will be based on the single image and not the series of images. Where one entrant submits multiple images, files should be saved in the file format ‘photographerfullname1.jpeg’ (or .jpg) etc. If an entrant submits more than three images, only the first three submitted will be judged. Entrants will be required to fill in a copyright form for their images, which will be emailed to them.

The Capturing Cancer: Oncology Central Photography Competition winner will be picked by the Oncology Central judging panel.

A second image will be picked for the Oncologists Choice Award – as chosen by the public on social media.
