Nikon Invites the Public to Vote in their Small World Photomicrography Competition

Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition

The public may now vote for their favorite images in the Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition. For the first time, the organizers have opened voting to the public in the 34-year-old photo contest, which is under the aegis of Nikon Instruments, Inc., a Nikon subsidiary based in Melville NY.

Nikon Small World recognizes the beauty of photography from science and industry taken under the light microscope.

This year’s competition garnered more than 1,500 micrographs from all over the world, covering subjects ranging from chemical compounds to close-ups of biological specimens.
