Medical Illustrator Wins Elsevier's Netter Art Contest

PHILADELPHIA, July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Judges select Paul J. Kim of New Jersey as winner of first-ever Netter contest

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the winner of the first Netter Atlas Medical Illustration Contest. Paul J. Kim, a professional medical illustrator based in Montclair, N.J., was selected by a distinguished panel of judges who chose 10 finalists, with Mr. Kim as the grand prize winner.

The announcement was made at the recent Annual Meeting of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists in Denver, CO, by officials from Elsevier, publisher of the best-selling Netter Atlas of Human Anatomy. Mr. Kim, who has an MS in Medical Illustration from the Georgia Health Sciences University, was among 37 contest entrants from nine countries and all walks of life. Mr. Kim will receive a cash prize of $5,000.

Contest participants were challenged to create an original illustration demonstrating the spatial relationships of the nerve root and the surrounding structure that could potentially replace the Netter Atlas plate 163-top in the new edition of the Atlas. The current image is a straight axial section.

"Our consulting editors thought an image showing a different perspective could be more instructive," said Linda Belfus, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Content, Clinical Solutions at Elsevier. "We understand the importance of medical illustrators to the education of clinicians and the practice of medicine, and we want to be a part of highlighting the talented professionals who are following in the footsteps of Dr. Frank Netter."

The contest was designed to identify emerging artists in the complex field of medical illustration. Blending scientific understanding with artistic technique, today's medical illustrators use advanced computer technology to create illustrations, infographics and animations used in medical education, patient information, health news, law and pharmaceutical advertising.
