Submissions are invited for the front cover of the Archives of Internal Medicine. We seek to portray art work created by clinician readers of the ARCHIVES. Submissions must be of your own work, and art that has to do with the theme of medicine is of particular interest. Creativity is appreciated.
Themes may be wide ranging. For instance, some may render the therapeutic encounter, others may depict emotions of physical or mental illness. Some may be interested in artistic renderings of anatomy, physiology, microbiology, medical equipment, historical medical documents, or medicinal herbs. Others may be interested in social or environmental roots of illness or social/spiritual rituals used in response to illness. Some may depict pieces from other art forms such as drama, music, or dance that have a medical theme.
Sculpture, paintings, drawings, photography, fabric art, graphic art, metalwork, crafts, computer art, depictions of medical specimens—perhaps historical artifacts—and other forms of art can all be acceptable so long as they can be captured in a photographic submission. A series of related pieces can also be submitted, although publication of a complete set cannot be guaranteed. The picture may be black and white or color and at least 3.5 × 5 inches but no larger than 8 × 10 inches. If you wish to submit a digital photograph, please see the digital art submission guidelines on our Web site at www.archinternmed.com. The picture must be oriented horizontally. No recognizable people should appear in the picture.
Submissions may be accompanied by a paragraph of less than 250 words written by the artist about the art piece. Submissions should identify the clinician-artist's specialty and year of graduation from medical or other graduate school.
