«Mètode» opens a call for artists


Art always enjoyed an important place within the pages of Mètode Popular Science Journal, trying to knock down the barrier between humanism and science. Throughout its history, a lot of artists contributed illustrating articles, dossiers and monographs, and also making the covers. Many of those works were created exclusively for Mètode and provide an artistic added value, as well as a different, cross-section view of the science topics addressed in the issue.

One of the next issues of Mètode will address the relationship between science and the press in the monograph. On this occasion, we make a call for any artist interested in participating. Presented works must represent the relationship between press and science, so complex sometimes. The journal team will choose a design among all the candidates to be the cover for the issue. The author will be awarded 250 euros. In addition, five other works will be chosen to illustrate the monograph, providing a new point of view. The rules can be consulted below.
