Calling All Fellows of NICHD—It's Image Competition Time!

We are beginning our search for the feature image of the 16th Annual NICHD Fellows Meeting.

The winning image, chosen by the Fellows Advisory Committee, will be showcased on the retreat website, on posters, and used as the front cover of the event program. Also, to highlight everyone’s imagery, all submissions we receive will be used to produce a collage posted on the 2020 retreat website. You can always take a look at the image submissions from previous years at

In addition to image resolution and quality, selection criteria include the relevance to our institute’s mission and artistic view of the image. All submissions (at the highest possible resolution) should be sent to Nicki Swan ( by January 31, 2020 with a brief caption for the image.
