Clara Cerviño » Committee
The International Advisory Committee is a new organism created to ensure the correct dissemination of scientific illustration both for the Award organized by Illustraciencia and for society in general. This Committee is formed by professionals committed to scientific illustration, among which we can find different profiles. From professional scientific illustrators with a long career to outreach technicians who work every day to transmit information with veracity and rigor. Given this diversity, the Committee will be able to work both to evaluate the technical parameters of the scientific illustrations (rigor, technique, composition and style) as well as their communication skills for the general public.
