Each entrant may submit no more than five (5) images. Only electronic image files submitted through the Journal of Hepatology contest website will be considered. Submission of TIFF files is highly encouraged. However, other file formats may be submitted (in decreasing order of preference):
The Journal of Hepatology is printed in US letter format. The front cover image needs to have at least 2480 x 3307 pixels (minimum 300 dpi). Scanned pictures or images generated using digital microscopes, made at a lower pixel count may still be suitable under certain circumstances. Do not artificially increase the number of pixels using imagery software.
Please submit the highest quality image with regard to file size, bit depth, and resolution; in RGB color values.
Each image should be accompanied by a brief description of the content of the image (no longer than 3 sentences or 200 characters with spaces) and a short biography of the author.
Naming of files
Please name your files using the following configuration example:
Only pictures of very high standard must be submitted. Please remember that winning pictures will feature on the Journal of Hepatology cover. Any image that has already won another competition is not eligible for this contest.
You must be the owner of the copyrights of all the files you submit. In cases where images utilise or contain copyrighted materials belonging to others, your submission will not be valid unless a signed formal letter of permission from the copyright owner(s) is obtained. This letter must be sent to EASL-JHEP (European Association for the Study of the Liver - Journal of Hepatology) by fax +41 (0)22 328 07 24 before the submission deadline (February 28, 2012). In the event that your file(s) infringe third party rights and EASL-JHEP is held liable for such, you undertake to fully indemnify EASL-JHEP for any damages and costs incurred to EASL-JHEP.
Given the potential publication of the submitted image by EASL-JHEP, the participants of the JHEP Cover Contest must grant EASL-JHEP a non-exclusive worldwide authorisation (“License”) to publish, reproduce, distribute, display and store the contributions in all forms, formats and media.
It is important to note that with this License, ownership of the copyright(s) remains with you, the competition submitter and participant, but other parties (in this case only EASL-JHEP) are allowed to copy and distribute the work, provided they acknowledge you. Remaining the full owner of copyrights, you will be free to distribute and publish your image(s) (as well as the resulting cover files EASL-JHEP that may be produced from them), provided that when reproducing the contributions or derivative works, you firstly acknowledge and reference publication in the Journal of Hepatology.
