Photo Competition: JVS/AVS 2021 cover pictures

Do you want to have your photo on the 2021 cover of the Journal of Vegetation Science or Applied Vegetation Science?

From 1 January 2021, both journals will be published in online-only version. Consequently, there will be no printed issues with a cover picture featuring one of the articles in the issue. Still, there will be one virtual cover for the whole volume of each year. We invite IAVS members to submit photos, of which we will select one for the 2021 cover of each journal.

To participate in our photo competition, please upload a maximum of three photos of square format to an online album by 30 November 2020. For each photo, provide a brief description and author’s name. Use the oak wooded meadow photo as a format example. If the paper relates to some of the papers published recently in JVS or AVS, mention it too. However, we also accept photos unrelated to the published papers. The main selection criteria will be aesthetic impression and whether the picture tells an interesting story about vegetation (its diversity, dynamics, management or restoration) or the ways how we study it.
