Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition

Small World "SMall Small World

July 26-Sept. 28, 2014
At Pacific Science Center

The Nikon International Small World Competition first began in 1975 as a means to recognize and applaud the efforts of those involved with photography through the light microscope. Since then, Small World has become a leading showcase for photomicrographers from the widest array of scientific disciplines.

A photomicrograph is a technical document that can be of great significance to science or industry. But a good photomicrograph is also an image whose structure, color, composition, and content is an object of beauty, open to several levels of comprehension and appreciation.

The Nikon Small World Competition is open to anyone with an interest in photography through the microscope. Truly international in scope, entries have been received from the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, Latin America, Asia and Africa. Winners have included both professionals and hobbyists.

Each year, the top 20 prize-winners are exhibited at numerous museums and science centers throughout the United States and Canada.
