The competition is open to all scientific disciplines and photographic formats. The annual selection of winners is chosen by an independent panel of judges. "Each year Small World winning images contribute to an ever growing historical archive reflecting our artistic and scientific progress in technology, research, communication, medicine, and industry," said Lee Shuett, senior vice president, Nikon Instruments. "The modern microscope has evolved from a simple optical device to a high tech system of information processing and imaging technology. These technologies come together to help us to better understand our world and create imagery unlike any the world has ever seen."
