Requirements of submission: 
All members of the Stanford community are invited to submit. Submission is limited to one piece per contestant. The focus of this competition is art, and thus the aesthetic rather than scientific quality of the image is key. Images must be related to materials science, broadly defined, but otherwise no limitations exist for image content. Creativity and uniqueness will be considered favorably. All images should be submitted as a high resolution .jpg file of at least 300 dpi, with a maximum size of 10 MB. The filename should include the submitter's first and last names. Images should be sent to StanfordMRS.AOS at gmail.com , along with a short description (maximum 150 words) of the techniques used, the object imaged, and the inspiration for the piece, as well as the full name of the submitter and his/her academic department. 

Submission deadline: 
May 18, 2012 

Judging and event details: 
Executives of the Stanford chapter of the Materials Research Society, faculty of the Dept. of Materials Science, and local artists will judge the submissions and will select finalists to be printed and put on display during the event. The time and location of the exhibition is TBD, but will take place at the end of the Spring quarter.
