Creative Competition

Welcome to the jIAPS Creative Competition. This year we are excited to celebrate the artistic talents of our IAPS members and alumni, with the chance to have your work published in jIAPS, the journal of IAPS.

If you are interested in taking part, we are accepting submissions from IAPS members and alumni in the following categories: photography, artwork, comic strips, prose, and infographics. All work must be original. Each category has certain requirements as well as a limit on the number of submissions per person (see below), although you may submit across multiple categories.

The first prize will be an item of IAPS merchandise as well as a feature in jIAPS 2019. Runners up will also have their work printed in the 2019 edition of jIAPS. Other works may be used on the jIAPS website and on social media.

We are receiving entries until June 9th, 23:59 GMT. Please email your entries to jiaps@iaps.info. By providing us with your work, you declare that you control the copyright for your work and give us a non-exclusive license to use it for jIAPS-related publications and/or social media.

Article Contest

jIAPS is well known for its article contest. Our aim is to let students at any level of education share their current scientific results or write about their specific field of interest. This gives students the practice of writing and sharing their ideas, important for the development of every scientist in the making.

The article competition is open until 28th February and students at any level of their education can participate. The first prize is an article published in this year’s jIAPS and free attendance to the conference, ICPS, held this year in Cologne, Germany.

In order to raise your chances of winning, we have compiled this guide to help you.

To submit your article, write to jiaps@iaps.info and grants@iaps.info, following the rules presented here.
