Call for NeuroDataViz!

Daniel Margulies of the NeuroBureau, an open neuroscience community, shared this opportunity:

The Brain-Art Competition 2011

Submission Deadline: 11:59PM CDT, Sunday, June 5th, 2011
Award Notification: June 28th, 9PM at the Cirque du Cerveau Gala (OHBM Annual Meeting), Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec.

In order to recognize the beauty and creativity of artistic renderings emerging from the neuroimaging community, we are launching the first annual Brain-Art Competition. Countless hours are devoted to the creation of informative visualizations for communicating neuroscientific findings. The Brain-Art Competition aims to recognize this often unappreciated aspect of the publication process, and highlight the artistic creativity of our community.

We are inviting researchers to submit their favorite unpublished works for entry. Both team and single-person entries are welcomed. The competition will have four award categories:

1) Best 3-Dimensional Brain Rendering
2) Best Representation of the Human Connectome
3) Best Abstract Brain Illustration
4) Best Comical Brain Illustration

Any neuroscientists out there with a penchant for beautiful visualizations?
