Welcome to the Microscopy Today
Micrograph Awards Competition





Description

The goal of this international competition is to identify and showcase scientific micrographs and movie clips. While there must be scientific content in the images, winning entries will also exhibit exceptional composition and other esthetic qualities. The competition, open to all types of microscopy, is divided into three categories:

The micrograph submission site will be open January 1 to February 21, 2019. A panel of judges will identify a number of finalists in each category and also select the first ($500), second ($300), and third ($100) prizes in each category. Members of the microscopy community will have the opportunity to vote for the "people's choice award." All micrograph awards will be presented at the annual M&M meeting.
