From MarketWatch:

“Nikon Instruments Inc. announced today that April 30th is the deadline for photomicrographers, scientists, artists, and the public to submit images for the 38th annual Nikon Small World competition, as well as the 2nd annual Nikon Small World in Motion contest.

The oldest and most respected competition of its kind, Nikon Small World celebrates the world’s best photomicrographers, who successfully find the intersection of art and science under the microscope by using a variety of sophisticated microscopy techniques.

Nikon Small World in Motion is a sister competition, exploring the exciting new trend in digital photomicrography of recording movies or digital time-lapse photography through the microscope. Movies are judged on the merit of being visually outstanding as well as depicting the intersection of science and art.

“Year after year, we prove that there is no better barometer for competitive scientific imaging than the Nikon Small World competition,” said Eric Flem, communications manager for Nikon Instruments Inc. “And with the incredible work we saw in our inaugural Nikon Small World in Motion contest, we are very excited to see how our entrants continue to raise the bar when it comes to imagery under the microscope.”

Entries for both images and movies will be judged by top industry experts and distinguished scientific media on a variety of criteria including originality, informational content, technical proficiency and visual impact. Entrants may use any brand of equipment to create their images…”
