Combining microscopy and photography, a photomicrographer is able to capture a glimpse of a world unseen by the naked eye. For fourty-four years, the Nikon Small World Competition has brought together photomicrographers of all levels and disciplines, and united them in a competition that truly celebrates and honors the intersection of science with art.
This year, there were over 2,000 entries from 86 countries. Each photomicrograph was judged by an independent panel of notable science, academic, photography and photomicrography authorities. Winning images were chosen based on originality, informational content, technical proficiency and visual impact.
Showcased in this calendar are the 20 winning photomicrographs, 10 honorable mentions, and Images of Distinction from the 2018 Competition.
The 2019 Small World Calendar's are $15 each with free ground shipping in the USA only.
