The HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology invites artists to participate in its DNA Day Art Competition and submit original work inspired by DNA, genetics and biotechnology.

The winning artist will receive a $1,000 cash award for the purchase of the work, which will become a permanent part of the institute’s collection.

The work will be reproduced on promotional materials related to the contest. All rights of ownership in and to the corresponding art, including all rights to use, reproduce, publish, modify, edit, and distribute the same will become the exclusive property of HudsonAlpha and will not be returned.  Additionally, five finalists will be announced and have their artwork displayed at the institute as part of the DNA Day Art Exhibition held April 25 – May 31.
