Inquiro UAB's Undergraduate Research Journal


Friday, March 31, 2017

Criteria for Submission:

Inquiro selects artwork and photography that demonstrates unique artistic vision and creativity which somehow relates to the sciences or to the spirit of research. Inquiro will not reprint previously published work.

In order to increase your chances of winning the contest and cash prize, your submission should be appropriate for the journal. It is recommended that you visit our archives and view the previous cover art winners.


Photos – May be color or black & white, any dimensions. Please submit an electronic version of photograph in high resolution as a .gif, .tiff, or .jpeg file.

Artwork – Please take a high quality color photograph or scan of your piece of art. Pictures of sculptures, models, or any other 3-dimensional artwork are also accepted. Please do not submit the original artwork.


Any undergraduate at UAB may submit artwork to be considered.

Selection Process:

Submissions will be reviewed anonymously by the Inquiro Editorial Board. One winner will be selected, and his/her artwork will be printed on the front cover of the journal. A runner up will also be selected, whose work will appear on the inside cover. Winners will also be honored at a reception following the publication of the journal. A cash prize of $125 will be awarded to the first place winner. The runner-up will receive a cash prize of $75.

Multiple Submissions:

Artists or photographers may submit more than one piece at a time. However, only one piece will be selected for any one artist.
