Illustration contest



In the frame of the fossil week there will be a exhibition with scientific illustrations of all areas of palaentology.

The contest comprises two categories of participants:

  • Professionals: illustrations produced in collaboration with scientists from the international paleontological community, either for international scientific publications, or for books and public expositions.
  • Amateurs: illustrations produced without professional help from the scientific community.

and two themes:

  • Realistic econstruction or an organism in its hypothetical (living) aspect, with or without its paleoenvironement
  • Fossil drawing of an isolated element or composition of fossils (fossilized organisms).

Each participant can submit a single illustration per theme, but he may contribute illustrations to both themes.

The illustrations will be submitted between May 17 and June 24, 2018, in digital format at the following e-mail

Voting will take place from July 7 to 12, 2018, and the results will be released on July 13, in the evening closing ceremony, and will subsequently be posted on the Facebook page of the IPC5.

Please read carefully the instructions and the rules. Participation in this competition implies that the participant accepts the terms of these rules without reserve.
