The goal of the competition of the Physical and Biophysical Chemistry Division of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) is to clearly illustrate an aspect of physical chemistry in a manner that can enrich the teaching of physical chemistry. The cartoon with text in English about should explain a phenomenon, experiment, or project of physical chemistry in an imaginative way and should be understandable by a general audience.

One entry per student will be accepted in the period January 1 to May 31, 2013. Students have to be enrolled at a secondary school or tertiary institution on the closing date of entries.

The cartoons will be judged by a panel with members from the IUPAC Division of Physical and Biophysical Chemistry. Awards of US$ 100 will go to five students whose cartoons are chosen as winning entries. Reviewing criteria (from most- to least-weighted) will be:

  • Relevance to physical chemistry (research, instructional, and/or application)
  • Creation of interest, novelty, entertainment value, etc.
  • Clarity and educational content
  • Presentation

Submit your cartoon and entry form to [email protected] in either a scanned jpeg image on a single A4 page, with up to 5 panels, or a powerpoint presentation of up to 5 slides, each being a cartoon panel.
