GEO Announces Illustration Competition

11.04.2013
As part of the European Earth Monitoring Competition "Copernicus Masters", GEO magazine is inviting illustrators and graphic designers to view our planet from a very different perspective.

Along with GEO magazine, published by the Hamburg publishing house Gruner + Jahr, the Copernicus Masters has announced to hold a competition for illustrators, graphic designers, and other artists for the first time this year. Under the heading "Traces of Humankind", participants will be asked to accentuate humankind's footprint on our blue planet by applying graphical and artistic techniques to satellite imagery.

The GEO Illustration Challenge is part of the Copernicus Masters, an annual Europe-wide competition that has awarded the best projects and business ideas for Earth monitoring applications since 2011. Copernicus, meanwhile, is the satellite programme of the European Commission and the European Space Agency (ESA) that will provide, accurate, timely and easily accessible information to improve the management of the environment, understand and mitigate the effects of climate change and ensure civil security. Previously known as Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES), the programme's name was officially changed to Copernicus in December 2012.

Submissions to the illustration challenge "Traces of Humankind" will be accepted now until 30 June 2013; those interested can register at www.geo.copernicus-masters.com. Participants will then get access to the necessary satellite imagery from four Copernicus Masters partners: ESA, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), European Space Imaging GmbH and Astrium GEO-Information Services. This summer, a jury will select the 20 best entries and publish them for voting at www.geo.de.

The entrant who takes home first prize will be commissioned to illustrate a GEO article and will receive a VIP invitation to attend the launch of a Sentinel satellite at the European space port in French Guiana. The top three submissions, meanwhile, will be printed in the European editions of GEO, and the 12 entries that prove most popular in the online vote will be compiled into an exclusive calendar.

About GEO
GEO magazine has been published monthly by the Hamburg, Germany publishing house Gruner + Jahr for 36 years. Its opulent photo coverage and exciting, impeccably researched reports on science, nature, and humankind have made it the most respected German-language reportage magazine and one-of-a-kind in Europe.
In the German-speaking countries alone, GEO can claim more than three million readers every month. Its publisher also supplements the magazine with a series of further topical journals, including the children's magazine GEOlino (along with UNICEF), the travel magazine GEO Special, and the science magazine GEOkompakt. Meanwhile, the initiatives "GEO schützt den Regenwald" ("GEO Protects the Rainforest") and "GEO-Tag der Artenvielfalt" ("GEO's Day of Species Diversity") further reflect GEO's effort to raise awareness of environmental protection and the sustainable handling of natural resources beyond its own readership.
First published in France in 1979 and in Spain and Russia in the 1980s, GEO currently appears in a total of 20 countries, including India and Brazil. It also sells print and digital versions of its magazine in English all around the world.

About the Copernicus Masters
Since 2011, the annual Copernicus Masters competition has awarded prizes to the best projects and business ideas involving commercial applications based on Earth observation data. Its purpose is to support the development of market-oriented applications that use data from the European Union's Copernicus programme (previously known as Global Monitoring of Environment and Security, or GMES). The Copernicus Masters was initiated by the European Space Agency (ESA); the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Infrastructure, Transport and Technology; the German Aerospace Center (DLR); and T-Systems with endorsement of the European Commission. In 2013 the Copernicus Masters is also supported by European Space Imaging GmbH; Astrium GEO-Information Services; and the BMW Group Research and Technology (submission phase 1 June to 15 September 2013). Furthermore, the competition's new media partner, GEO magazine, will be accepting entries in its own special challenge (submission open until 30 June). The Copernicus Masters competition is organised by Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen.

Im Focus: Poröse kristalline Materialien: TU Graz-Forscher zeigt Methode zum gezielten Wachstum

Mikroporöse Kristalle (MOFs) bergen große Potentiale für die funktionalen Materialien der Zukunft. Paolo Falcaro von der TU Graz et al zeigen in Nature Materials, wie man MOFs gezielt im großen Maßstab wachsen lässt.

„Metal-organic frameworks“ (MOFs) genannte poröse Kristalle bestehen aus metallischen Knotenpunkten mit organischen Molekülen als Verbindungselemente. Dank...

Im Focus: Gravitationswellen als Sensor für Dunkle Materie

Die mit der Entdeckung von Gravitationswellen entstandene neue Disziplin der Gravitationswellen-Astronomie bekommt eine weitere Aufgabe: die Suche nach Dunkler Materie. Diese könnte aus einem Bose-Einstein-Kondensat sehr leichter Teilchen bestehen. Wie Rechnungen zeigen, würden Gravitationswellen gebremst, wenn sie durch derartige Dunkle Materie laufen. Dies führt zu einer Verspätung von Gravitationswellen relativ zu Licht, die bereits mit den heutigen Detektoren messbar sein sollte.

Im Universum muss es gut fünfmal mehr unsichtbare als sichtbare Materie geben. Woraus diese Dunkle Materie besteht, ist immer noch unbekannt. Die...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Wie sich Zellen gegen Salmonellen verteidigen

Bioinformatiker der Goethe-Universität haben das erste mathematische Modell für einen zentralen Verteidigungsmechanismus der Zelle gegen das Bakterium Salmonella entwickelt. Sie können ihren experimentell arbeitenden Kollegen damit wertvolle Anregungen zur Aufklärung der beteiligten Signalwege geben.

Jedes Jahr sind Salmonellen weltweit für Millionen von Infektionen und tausende Todesfälle verantwortlich. Die Körperzellen können sich aber gegen die...
