Quick reminder: The Nikon Small World competition's deadline is less than a week away. Nikon Small World closely matches our community's interests, and quite a few of our members have been awardees. Anyone not familiar with Nikon Small World would do well to check it out and consider entering.

A few details based on personal communication with competition officials:
    Home-made microscopes: While eligible images must be made with a light microscope, those from home-made microscopes (such as my macro rig) are definitely eligible: "The homemade microscope is a new and growing sector of the contest and we are excited to collect and judge these images."

    Our Administrators Appreciation Awards: While images that have won another competition are not eligible, our forum's Administrators Appreciation Award is not considered a competition and does not affect Nikon Small World eligibility.

    Video: "The video portion of the contest is of great interest, Small World in Motion is relatively new and video microscopy is in the infancy stage, so I feel this contest is wide open. The videos and still images are judged separately each year."

Below is an email from Nikon Small World's Eric Clark, shared by request.
    We would like to personally invite you to enter the Nikon Small World Photographic Competition and/or the Nikon Small World Image in Motion movie Competition for the 2016/2017 year.

    Entries for the Small World contest can be uploaded directly to the MicroscopyU servers at the following URL:

    The first place winner wins $3,000 and monetary prizes are also given to the top 20. You can read the rules and prizes listed at MicroscopyU.

    The deadline is Saturday, April 30th, 2016. There is no "upper" size limit. If you have trouble entering your images, you may also email entries directly to me.

    Each contestant will receive a 2017 full color Small World Calendar in November, compliments of Nikon.

    The entries for each of these contests are judged separately and you are eligible to enter and win BOTH competitions.

    Nikon Small World has grown to be the largest photographic competition in the world with the winners images being displayed to over 500 million people each year worldwide.

    The Small World gallery of winning images graces the covers and pages and websites of some of the worlds most respected publications including Nature, CNN, National Geographic, and Scientific American, just to name a few. Exhibits containing the winning entries are displayed at museums and science centers throughout the U.S. and Canada and has hung at the National Academy of Science in Washington DC.

    Thank you for your time and consideration and if you have any trouble with your entry or have any questions, please contact me at eclark@magnet.fsu.edu
