This is just a quick reminder of the photo contest being held this year for
the CEDAR community. Below is the original email sent out January 2nd.
Good luck to all of our contestants,
Lindsay Goodwin, CEDAR Student Representative
The CEDAR Science Steering Committee (CSSC) wants to expand the visual
aspect of our community by building an image repository. I am pleased to
announce that to start this process there will be a photo contest at this
year's CEDAR meeting! There will be three categories, and a winner for each
category: 1. Instruments and landmarks related to space physics, 2. People
of the CEDAR community, and 3. CEDAR physics in action, e.g. sprites,
lightning, noctilucent clouds, and so on (we hope to have more diversity
than just hundreds of the same ol’ aurora shots). All photos will be made
available, and the winning photos will be prominently featured (either
online or in a location to be determined).
*Rules and important information:*
· Each photo can only be a maximum of 25MB
· For each photo, the photographer must specify the approximate date,
location, category, and subject of the photograph
· Contest entries must be submitted to cedarphotocontest at gmail.com by June
21 (the day of the student workshop)
· Since the main goal of this contest is to build up an image repository,
a contestant can enter as many images as they would like in any category
· Only people who have attended a CEDAR Workshop in the past or are
planning to attend the 2015 Workshop are eligible
· The winners will be announced on the last day of the CEDAR workshop
· By entering this contest, the photographer agrees to the rules and
regulations outlined below (I apologize for the heavy legal jargon below,
but copyright laws are tricky).
Outside of the contest, or after the contest is over, we would welcome the
submission of photos that show off CEDAR science, as long as the submitter
give the CSSC non-exclusive rights to use those photos as described below.
Please email cedarphotocontest at gmail.com, Josh Semeter (jls at bu.edu), or
myself (lindsaygoodw at gmail.com) if you have any questions.
