EMBO Journal has just announced its annual competition for the best (scientific or non-scientific) cover images in 2010. The front cover of the 4 November issue (pictured) shows an assembly of many of the beautiful images that have been featured on the EMBO Journal since 2007; most of these had been submitted to previous competitions by scientists based throughout the world. Please visit the journal’s competition page for details of how you can participate in this year’s contest and submit your entries online. You can take a look at the gallery in the journal’s online archive for an impression of what type of images might be good candidates for an EMBO Journal cover. The jury and the editors are looking forward to seeing your contributions. The closing date of the 2010 cover contest is 15 January 2010. Send a brief email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to receive a notification when next year’s contest is announced.
