Endocrine Images Awards Submission Guidelines

February 03, 2023

The competition is open to researchers with an interest in endocrine science. Entries may be submitted on behalf of an individual or a group. One entry is allowed per individual, whether they are submitting on their own or as part of a group. 

Submissions should be light or electron microscopy or other life science images. Entries must be submitted as high-resolution photography or illustration file. Original JPG or TIF files are preferred, with a resolution of at least 300 pixels per inch. TIF files need to be converted to .zip for submission. Please submit the highest resolution file size possible.  

We plan to showcase top entries as 48-inch by 36-inch (121.92 cm x 91.44 cm) posters at ENDO 2024, the Society’s annual meeting. Entries may also be considered for use in the Society’s publications, social media channels, and marketing materials. 

The winning entries will be selected by Endocrine Society member volunteers. The judges will consider esthetics and relevance to endocrine science in selecting the winners. 

The researcher who submits the grand prize-winning entry or one member of the winning team will receive complimentary registration to ENDO 2024. If the winner is already registered for the meeting, they will receive complimentary registration to ENDO 2025. The winner must use this award toward a new purchase by July 2025. The award cannot be used toward a previous purchase of a meeting registration. In addition, the individual who receives the ENDO registration prize will receive a complimentary Endocrine Society membership for a 12-month period.
