A Simpler Way to be Published in Science?

Alisa Machalek at the National Institute of General Medical Sciences' Feedback Loop blog is calling for submissions to the agency's image gallery, which "contains photos, illustrations, and videos that showcase NIGMS-supported science." She writes that NIGMS prefers entries sans copyright restrictions, as the gallery is freely accessible to the public. Machalek also urges those interested to enter the National Science Founation's International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge by the September 15 deadline. "Winning submissions will appear in a February 2011 issue of Science," she writes of the competition, which she has judged for the past two years.
