  • Early Career Event (Wednesday October 16th, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm)
  • Fine Arts Competition (Submission deadline: September 16th)

    The second annual Particle Art Competition will take place again! To participate in the art competition, submit original pictures of your finest looking particles (sub-micrometer scale) or larger-scale pictures depicting aerosols or lab equipment. We are excited to announce that there will be an Aerosol Video Competition as well! To participate in the video competition, create a video that promotes aerosol science to a wider audience. The deadline is September 16, 2019. Monetary prizes will be awarded this year!

    Specific Details

    The 2019 AAAR will have both an art and video competition. This is your chance to showcase your creative side and help educate the world about aerosols!

    • Submit an entry of your most beautiful, interesting or artistic-looking particle(s) or other images of aerosols or research equipment. There are two submission categories – images at the sub-micrometer scale or larger scale.
    • Create an engaging and educational video to explain aerosol science to a wider audience. Submitted videos will be screened by the education committee and the top 5 entries will be featured at the conference.

    Art entries will be displayed near the posters and the top videos will be continually played on a monitor in the exhibit hall during the conference. A democratic vote will determine the winners of cash prizes.
    Art prizes for each category: First prize $500, Second prize $200, Third prize $100
    Video prize: First prize $500 (+up to $5000 to improve video), Second prize $200, Third prize $100

    To enter the art competition, electronically submit a high resolution image as a PDF file with a title, list of contributing artists and their affiliations, and brief explanation of your submission (~60 words maximum) at the following website: http://aaarabstracts.com/2019/upload_art.php

    To enter the video competition, please read the instructions here: https://uoft.me/AAARVideo2019 Provide a video title, list of contributing artists and their affiliations, a brief explanation of your submission (~60 words maximum), and a YouTube link to your video at the following website: http://aaarabstracts.com/2019/upload_video.php

    To participate, at least one of the artists is required to be a registered attendee at the conference. Note that you must bring a hard copy of your art to display in the exhibit hall.

    Submissions should be the original work of the author(s). Submission indicates permission for your picture or video to be displayed at the conference, on the AAAR website/conference website or related literature, including the Particulars e-Newsletter.

    If you have additional questions, please contact the respective coordinators of the competitions:
    Dr. Marit Meyer (marit.meyer@nasa.gov), particle art coordinator
    Drs. Coty Jen (cotyj@andrew.cmu.edu), Arthur Chan (arthurwh.chan@utoronto.ca), and Eben Cross (escross@aerodyne.com) coordinators of the video competition
