The International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge is a competition sponsored by the journal Science (and the AAAS) and the National Science Foundation (NSF). Judges are appointed by these organizations, and they select winners in each of five categories: Photography, Illustrations, Informational Posters and Graphics, Interactive Games, and Non-Interactive Media. Winners have their art/media featured in a special section in Science and Science Online as well as on the NSF website, with one of the entries appearing on the front cover.
Watch the video below for the highlights on past winners and some images below from this year's and last year's winners:
