Closing date for entries; 30 April 2010
This prestigious annual contest promoted by Nikon Instruments has been running since 1977 and is a celebration of both the technical excellence and artistic expression involved in creating scientific imagery. Images must have been taken through a microscope using any of the techniques of light microscopy.
Nikon Instruments made clear that any commercial opportunities that may arise with regard to the winning entries will be passed to the submitting photographer and negotiated without Nikon's involvement.
Winning images only in this contest will be retained by Nikon Instruments solely for the purposes of promoting this contest and will be exhibited in various exhibitions in North America.
The majority of the entrants to this competition are not photographers but rather scientists who are capturing images for the purposes of their research. In this community, non-commercial open access image sharing (with proper credit) is considered a normal practice and an important part of scientific collaboration.
There is a top prize of $3,000.00 and the competition is open to entrants over the age of 18. For further details and to enter the contest click here.
