Nikon has recently opened the 2014 Small World In Motion Digital Video Competition and accepting movies captured using a light microscope. Any type of specimen and all techniques of light microscopy are acceptable.
Three (3) main prizes consisting of Nikon photographic, scientific or industrial equipment will be awarded to the creators of the best entries, from which the first price is valued at US $3,000.
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.
The competition category for movies, thus the Small World In Motion Digital Video Competition, was introduced in 2011 during the 37th annual Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition. This year marks the 39th edition of the Small World competition.
