Create a meme.

Double your chances of winning a gift card!

Submit your abstract early, by Nov. 23, and you will be entered into a drawing to win one of three $250 gift cards. Then, share a science-inspired meme with us via Twitter or Instagram by Nov. 30 and you’ll be entered in a second contest. We’ll open up the meme collection to voting on Dec. 1, and the top three vote-getters each will receive a $250 VISA gift card. All lucky winners may claim their gift cards when they check in at the annual meeting in San Diego.

Here’s how to increase your chances of winning a prize by sending us a meme:

1. Submit your abstract for the 2018 ASBMB Annual Meeting by Nov. 23. (You must submit an abstract to enter the meme contest.)
2. Use your experience in the lab and conducting your research to create a biochemistry and molecular biology–themed meme. (A quick Google search for “meme generator” will lead you to some handy tools.)
3. Tweet us your meme @ASBMB or tag us on Instagram @TheASBMB using #ASBMBMemes by Nov. 30 to submit your meme to the contest. (Set your profiles to public so we can view your work.)
4. Voting for favorite memes will begin Dec. 1 and close at midnight EST on Dec. 7. We will notify the winners via Twitter message or Instagram on or around Dec. 8. Voting will be hosted on ASBMB Today’s website.
Good luck! We can’t wait to see your masterpieces, both abstract and meme!
