By submitting, participants consent to their image being used by STEMCELL Technologies in promotional content related to the #StemCellfie Contest. Submissions of human- or animal-derived cells will be accepted. Submissions must not contain any scale bars, legends, titles, or other text. Submissions may be disqualified from the contest for other reasons, including, but not limited to, for being of low resolution, non-human or -animal cell type, or other. Submissions from previous #StemCellfie contests will not be accepted. STEMCELL reserves the right to disqualify submissions from parties with a conflict of interest with STEMCELL Technologies. You must own the rights to your image. Submissions will be shortlisted for public voting via an internal STEMCELL staff voting period the week before the public vote begins. Newcomers to the #StemCellfie contest can check the “#StemCellfie Newcomer” box on the entry form for entry into a random prize draw; contestants that have entered the #StemCellfie contest in the previous 5 years will not be entered into the #StemCellfie Newcomers Random Prize Draw. Only one prize per contestant; contestants cannot win prizes in multiple categories.
