Falling-MouseCelldance 2013, ASCB's Really Useful Cell Biology Video Contest, has engineered a truly simple PDF download of the "Mad Mice" poster. Suitable for high-resolution color printers or screen savers, the "Mad Mice" poster serves a double purpose—it will make your lab bench or office space pop (graphically) and it reminds you to enter your short video that illustrates a basic cell mechanism or process by October 31.

If your very short microscopy video makes some aspect of cell biology perfectly clear, especially for those who teach at the introductory course level and for the public prowling the Web, you could win $500 cash and a complimentary registration for the 2013 ASCB Annual Meeting. Other Really Useful cash prizes of $250 and $150 plus a separate $250 Public Outreach Award will be awarded December 17 in New Orleans by ASCB's Public Information Committee (PIC). You don't have to be present to win but why miss out on the adulation of your peers?
