Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the opening of the first CCP4 Study Weekend
illustration competition, made possible by CCP4’s long standing
collaboration with IUCr Journals.

Getting your science out to the public requires more than good research.
You need to make it memorable! And what better way to do it than with
excellent figures? We invite you to make a figure that tells a structural
biology story in a creative and informative way. The submitted figures will
be showcased during the Study Weekend at several locations at the
conference venue.

The creator of the winning illustration gets to design the cover
illustration of the Study Weekend’s proceedings to be published early 2021.
Apart from this commission there may be another (sur)prize.

Illustrations, along with a short description of content and methods used,
are to be sent to jon.agirre at york.ac.uk before December 15th 2019.

Images must have a resolution of 1920x1080 (16:9) in order to fit the
format of the screens and main room projector. Any combination of graphics
and (if any) post-processing software may be used, as long as details are
given with the submission. The format of the illustration should be PNG.

As you may know, Dr Jeroen Claus (founder of Phospho Biomedical Animation)
will give the closing talk at the 2020 edition of the CCP4 Study Weekend.
He, along with Louise Jones (managing editor of Acta Crystallographica
sections D & F) will judge the submitted figures based on their graphical
quality as well as their ability to convey a complex structural message

The winner will be announced on January 8th at the dinner - before the
