Inmaculada Vicente » 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.

Link with the world of scientific illustration: Since June 2014 I have been producing the LAB24 program, which is broadcasted weekly on Canal 24horas TVE, a program dedicated to the dissemination of the scientific and technological world. LAB24 is structured with an interview to a researcher or scientific expert, a report and a closing. Most closures are samples of scientific exhibitions. Since the beginning of the program we wanted to show the audience the winning works of the Illustraciencia contest. Registered in the Catalan Association of Scientific Communication since that year.
