Nikon’s Small World is widely regarded as the leading forum to recognize proficiency and excellence of photography taken under the microscope. To select the winners, competition judges analyzed entries from all over the world.

A photomicrograph is an image whose structure, color, composition and content can be an object of beauty, open to several levels of comprehension and appreciation. The Nikon Small World Competition first began in 1975 to recognize and applaud the efforts of those involved with photography through the light microscope. Since then, it has become a leading showcase for photomicrographers from the widest array of scientific disciplines.
