Photo and video contest logo

Want to showcase your beautiful work? Our popular photo and video contest is back! Submissions are now open through April 20, 2022.  

In the neuroscience community, we often mention the beautiful hand drawings of Ramón y Cajal and their ability to capture the delicate details of  neurons and dendrites. Today’s innovative and ground-breaking technology continues to capture the wonder and complexity of the brain.  

Show us the images and videos from your work that have dropped your jaw in awe! Each year, regardless of discipline, career stage, or funding source, we invite all those engaged with or interested in the Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies® (BRAIN) Initiative to submit their coolest, most artistic, and eye-catching images or short videos of the brain.  

What: 2022 Show Us Your BRAINs! Photo & Video Contest  

Who: All those engaged or interested in the BRAIN Initiative regardless of discipline, career stage, or funding source.

Process: Please submit your entries through the submission form. For each year’s contest, the BRAIN Initiative Meeting Program Committee reviews anonymized submissions and narrows the field to submissions they feel capture the creative spirit of the BRAIN Initiative.
