Would you like to see one of your geologically-oriented photographs grace the cover of Geoscience Canada ? Commencing in 2016, This is a possibility. In the past, we have chosen an image related to one of the papers in a given volume and used it through the year, but we want to try something different next year. We are always amazed at the artistic talents of geoscientists with cameras, so we are calling for submissions from interested readers, in all disciplines of Geoscience. If you have something in mind, read our instructions below, and get in touch. The successful photographer will be credited fully for his or her work and, if you are not currently a subscriber to the Journal, we'll send you "your" issue for free. But if you're not a subscriber, why not? Geoscience Canada is fantastic value on a yearly basis, and you'll soon appreciate how useful it can be to you. However, we will only accept submissions from members of the Geological Association of Canada (students included).
