The FEBS Journal COVID-19 Creative Communication Competition Winners!

The FEBS Journal hosted a creative communication competition in July inviting creative endeavours from early-career researchers to show what ‘re-opening the lab' life looks like after initial COVID-19 lockdown measures have been eased. After editors voted, the winners have been announced!

A big shout out and thank you to all early-career researchers who contributed and expressed their creativity in all sorts of ways! We had a great time assessing the entries and thought that each submission was thoughtful and unique - selecting the winners was not an easy task. In the end, we thought that two entries captured the spirit of the competition in terms of relevance, accuracy and appeal to a broad audience particularly well. In addition, we will also highlight a few entries that we thought were exceptional and deserve an honourable mention.
