Entries now being accepted for CMS poster contest

The CMS experiment at CERN would like to generate a new set of posters to be used for publicity over the next two years. To that end, CMS is hosting a poster contest. A successful proposal will likely include several posters that promote the energy and excitement of the people, equipment and physics explored by CMS using the LHC.

The posters should have the following properties:

  • A0 (or bigger) format
  • common look and feel for all posters in the set
  • worldwide usage, including English-language text

The submissions must come from CMS institutions—laboratories or universities collaborating on CMS—and will be official submissions of those institutions (the artist will receive artistic credit). It is not necessary that individual submitters be part of CMS to enter.

Those at Fermilab interested in this artistic project and who would like to submit poster ideas on behalf of the laboratory should send their ideas or entries to US CMS Outreach Coordinator Don Lincoln, who will officially submit the entries. Individuals may not submit proposals to CMS directly; any proposals submitted this way will be rejected.

Initial submissions must be received by July 31, with fully executed posters delivered later in the summer.

For more information, see the complete poster contest rules or contact Don Lincoln.
