TRIARCH "Botanical Images" Student Travel Award
2019 Winning Photographs
Established by Dr. Paul Conant, and supported by TRIARCH INCORPORATED, this award provides acknowledgement and travel support to BSA meetings for outstanding student work in the area of creating botanical digital images.
The Botanical Society of America is pleased to announce the Triarch “Botanical Images” Student Travel Awards for 2021. Three awards are available to undergraduate and graduate students registered for, and attending, the Botany 2021 Conference to be held in Boise, Idaho July 24-27, 2021.
TRIARCH INCORPORATED provides 3 travel awards each year for attendance at the Botany Conference. Awards will be given for the top three botanical images ($500, $300 and $200) as judged by the 2021 Triarch Image Panel. Although the presentation of a paper/poster at Botany 2021 is not a requirement, students who are presenting will be given the highest priority. View past submissions.
The Triarch “Botanical Images” awards are given for the outstanding botanical images, provided by a student member of the Botanical Society of America. Submissions are limited to "FOUR-per-person." Images must be accompanied by a well written explanation outlining the significance of the image to botany in language understandable to non-professionals.
Submissions must include (via the online form):
- A brief paragraph explaining the image to a non-professional audience using, and explaining, botanical terms.
- Metadata fields
- Name(s) of creator(s), including institutional information, address, one phone number and one contact email;
- Image title, botanical discipline represented;
- Botanical name(s), common name(s), when the image was taken, where it was taken (longitude/latitude if available and appropriate);
- Links to online publication (i.e. if used in the AJB). If published elsewhere, we will need proof of copyright permission.
- File must be a .JPG within the size range minimum 1MB - maximum 15MB and must be an image created by you or as part of a team/lab you are working with.
More information on how to submit images will be updated here when the award is opened in early 2021.
