Can you create an illustration SO GOOD, it could replace one of Netter's original plates?
Create an original illustration showing the spatial relationships of the nerve root and surrounding structures that is so good, it could replace Netter’s image in the Atlas of Human Anatomy, 5th edition: Plate 163-top (shown above) in the next edition of the Netter Atlas.
One (1) winner will receive $5,000 cash prize. Winning illustration may, upon Panel’s sole discretion, be included within the upcoming 6th edition of Netter Atlas.

Focus on the 3D spatial relationships of the vertebra(e), spinal cord, spinal root, ligaments, and spaces. The relationship to the radicular vessels, meninges and sympathetic trunk will be important.
Feature any region of the spine (cervical, thoracic, or lumbar), but Sponsor suggests featuring either the cervical region where the rootlets will be roughly in the horizontal plane or the thoracic region.
No limitation to an axial cross section or single vertebra – use whatever view would be most useful to convey spatial relationships at the spinal nerve origin.
Prepare your submission so that it can be saved as a 44x40 pica layered EPS, but only send a pdf proof when entering. Label for reference only; a specific font is not required. We recommend using 8/9 pt. and .75-wide leader lines.
