Best cell biology photo contest

Best cell biology photo contest

This year, the EAO Congress is launching a new competition in order to find the Best cell biology photo.

Below you will find general criteria, some tips for you to choose your best shot as well as the criteria to be used by the jury. Should you have any questions regarding the contest, please contact using “Photo Contest” in the subject.

Photo criteria

The jury will select photos from Scanning electron microscope (SEM) or histology visuals that are related to implant dentistry.


  • soft or hard tissue healing
  • peri-implant inflammation
  • bone grafting
  • socket healing

Technical requirements

  • Color or black & white
  • Format: jpeg
  • Resolution: 300 ppi
  • Minimum size of 2480 by 3508 pixels (21 x 29.7 cm), ideally the maximum size and resolution available
  • Maximum file size of 30MB. If the photo exceeds this amount, the upload will not be successful.
  • There cannot be any laboratory, brand name or specific technology to be able to be recognized on the photo.

Important: you can send a low definition photo in order to avoid technical problems but, if selected, your picture must comply with the above mentioned technical requirements.


All figures should clarify the text and their number should be kept to a minimum. Details must be large enough to retain their clarity after reduction in size. Micrographs should be designed to be reproduced without reduction, and they should be dressed directly on the micrograph with a linear size scale, arrows, and other designators as needed. Each figure should have a legend.

Although authors are encouraged to send the highest-quality figures possible, for peer-review purposes, a wide variety of formats, sizes, and resolutions are accepted.

Judgement criteria

  • scientific impact of the topic
  • clinical relevance of the topic shown
  • novelty and uniqueness: has something similar been shown so far?
  • clarity: can one understand from the picture what is being shown?
  • Attraction: is it something that catches your eye and you want to discover it more deeply?


  • Dr Kathrin Becker, EAO Congress Committee
  • Dr Björn Klinge, EAO


  • The selected photo will be the cover of an issue of COIR.
  • All photos will be displayed at the 28th EAO Annual Congress, to be held in Lisbon, on 26-28 September 2019.


    • Wednesday 31th July
