Chemical Contests

I’ve been asked to drop a reminder about C&EN Photo Contest. The contest offers hard cash for pics of your science. On an aside, if you also happen to be photogenic I would suggest you put some science action shots of yourself in their Flickr collection; a perennial complaint from C&EN is that they need more pictures of people doing science.

Science-artsy flickr group abound as RSC also has their own too, Art on a Chip. They sadly only have 4 members compared to C&EN 52 members.


An other competitive extracurricular activity to partake in is crafting graphical abstract puns. There is a new website TOC ROFL dedicated to highlighting the creative abstracts of chemical authors.

I’ve decided to jump on the funny-abstract bandwagon too. If you come up with a witty pun or see an interesting graphical abstract at ChemFeeds leave a comment on the paper and your comment will immediately be featured in the upper right hand corner of Chemistry Blog under “LATEST FUNNY CHEMISTRY”. Have fun and be creative.

    You really need to have a look at the definition of a pun. You are failing hard so far. And most of them are not that punny.

    I admit I’m not good at punning, feel free to raise the bar.

    “a perennial complaint from C&EN is that they need more pictures of people doing science.”

    Why don’t they just do like everyone else does – pay for licensed photos.

    I’m not very good at puns. My dad is the king of puns. Literally anything you say he comes out with a pun at times its really annoying.

    like if you say that you were accidentally trying to talk to a deaf person on the train he will always return with “What?” And like an Idiot I will always repeat it.
