African Zoology New Cover Competition

 

African Zoology is undergoing some changes in 2015 including a new submissions site, a new online home as well as an increase to four issues a year. As part of these changes, we will be refreshing the journal’s cover. We are therefore putting out this call for the submission of images suitable for the new cover this prestigious journal.

Do you have a striking image of African fauna in terrestrial, freshwater, or marine environments that you think may be suitable for the cover? 

In addition to the status of having your photograph featured on the cover of African Zoology, the winning entrant will receive a free 2015 print and online subscription to African Zoology.

  • Submissions can be photographs of any African animal(s) in their natural environment.
  • Submissions should ideally be in .jpg format and should be no larger than 500KB per image. Emailed submissions should be no larger than 10MB with maximum of 20 images per entrant.
  • Submissions must be made by the original photographer, who must have a high resolution version of the image available on request, should this image be selected.

The photographer will retain all copyright on their image and be fully credited although NISC and its partners will have the right to use the image elsewhere to promote the journal

Submission deadline: 31 October 2014 

The competition winner will be contacted directly and announced on the various NISC social media pages. If you are interested, please email your images to info@nisc.co.za with the subject ‘African Zoology Cover’.

Perhaps the most important change, in terms of bringing the Journal to a wider audience, has been its publishing in collaboration with the NISC (Pty) Ltd.

Thank you for the rare experience of a set of proofs on which I can find nothing to correct!

The biggest development in the history of Quaestiones Mathematicae was the association with NISC and to have the journal running in a very stable way without severe financial concerns.
