A friendly reminder from Adrian Thysse about the JAM 2012 Photo Competition!
The deadline for submission to the 2012 JAM photo competition is October 30! All JAM 2012 participants are eligible to enter, so why not submit your best shots now?
The theme for the competition will be Canadian Arthropods, and there are four categories:
- Dead – pinned or preserved specimens
- Alive – in the natural habitat
- Dead or Alive – predators with prey
- Alive with mites – insect mite symbiosis (Sponsored by International Journal of Acarology editor, Dave Walter)
$150 will be awarded to the winner for each category and the “Alive with mites” winner may be offered the opportunity to be a cover illustration for the International Journal of Acarology.
So far the judges include John Acorn, David Walter and myself, and we are looking forward to a wealth of submissions from all the many entomologists, amateur or professional, that will be attending JAM 2012.
Go check out the rules and submit today!
