2005 Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge winners announced

Sometimes the best way to express a scientific idea is through an image that grabs the eye and invites viewers to wonder what they're seeing.

Nine entries, each telling a scientific story with a careful balance of accuracy and beauty, have won the 2005 Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge, sponsored jointly by the National Science Foundation and the journal Science, published by AAAS, the nonprofit science society.

The contest, currently in its third year, recognizes outstanding achievement in the use of visual media to promote understanding of research results and scientific phenomena. The judges' criteria for evaluating the entries included visual impact, innovation and accuracy.

The winning entries communicate information about the brilliant spectrum of fluorescing molecules, the fleeting moment when one neuron prepares to signal another, the spectacular emergence of the 17-year cicada, and more. A news story in the 23 September 2005 issue of Science presents all of the entries, which will also be freely available at www.sciencemag.org/sciext/vis2005/. The entries will also be displayed at the National Science Foundation's website, http://www.nsf.gov/news/special_reports/scivis/overview.jsp

When the embargo lifts at 2:00 PM US ET on Thursday 22 September, a web version of the 17-year cicada movie, plus a "Science for Kids" story about this entry, will be freely available online at the EurekAlert! Kids Portal, http://www.eurekalert.org/cicadas

The winning entries are in five categories:
