Photomicrography competitions

Posted on June 22, 2016

Nikon has been organizing a photography contest of the microworld since 1975. They accept any image produced with a light microscope (compound or steroscopic), no matter the subject (you can read more about the rules here). As a photography enthusiast and a scientist, I can only delight my eyes with such a beautiful images like these ones:

José R. Almodóvar. University of Puerto Rico (UPR)

Tentacles of a carnivorous plant (Drosera sp.) (20x)

Dr. Torsten Wittmann The Scripps Research Institute San Diego, California, USA

Filamentous actin and microtubules (structural proteins) in mouse fibroblasts (cells) (1000x)

Dr. John Hart, University of Colorado, Boulder Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Boulder, Colorado, USA

Resorcinal and methylene blue crystal (33x)

The deadline for the 2016 contest is already closed, but while we wait for trying our best in 2017, we can delight our eyes with the previous year contestants and winners in the Nikon’s Small World website.
