AAAR 39th Annual Conference

Aerosol Art & Video Competitions

The 39th AAAR conference 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. You may exercise your creativity with the image, adding color, etc.  There are two submission categories – images at the microscopic 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 online during the conference and the top videos will also be available to view during the conference. A democratic vote will determine the winners of cash prizes.
