ESA 2017 is next week! Yikes, that’s soon!
As usual, I’ll have tons of fun judging an Unofficial ESA Parasite Ecology Cartoon Contest. My favorite cartoonist will be awarded an almost entirely worthless prize (i.e., some publicity for their cool science and bragging rights for a year).
To participate, all you need to do is put a cartoon in your talk. The cartoons don’t need to be funny! They also don’t need to be your personal artwork – borrowing with permission and attribution is fine. I’m just looking for cartoons that help communicate your work to the audience. That being said, anything punny is worth mega bonus points.
Somehow, the Daphnia cartoons always win, so all of you non-Daphnia people better step up this year.
To anticipate some questions:
Can you use cartoons from this site, if you use proper attribution? Yes!
Can the judge be swayed by offers of free lattes or postdoc positions? No! (Except yes. So much yes.)
