NikonThe winning image of the 30th Annual Nikon International Small World Competition represents a range of new possibilities using nanotechnolgy to transform our physical world in ways never before imagined. Out of 1,200 images submitted from around the globe, only twenty were selected for this year's Small World Photomicrography exhibit. These winners will be recognized tonight at a twilight reception held at Good Morning America's Studios in New York's Times Square, where Nikon will debut the complete gallery of winning photos set to tour science and art museums across the nation beginning January 1, 2005. The top three images include Mr. Seth Coe-Sullivan's image, a spiderwort flower anther.

These winners stand on the cusp of a revolution in imaging technology that enable scientific professionals to deepen their research and share their results faster with other scientific professionals who, in turn, build upon their accomplishments.

We are all beneficiaries of their scientific insights and artistic perceptions," said Lee Shuett, executive vice president, Nikon Instruments. "The photomicrographs featured in the gallery of art demonstrate scientific curiosity blended with extraordinary artistic sensibility."

Nikon Instruments also announced today that it will kick off its Small World museum tour throughout the US in January. "The Nikon Small World Exhibit attracts thousands of people of all ages fascinated by these uniquely moving images," said Eric Flem, communications manager, Nikon Instruments. "These photos allow us to share in the special moments of discovery that spark scientific curiosity, and can serve as inspiration to aspiring young scientists."

The Nikon Small World 2004 distinguished panel of judges included Michael Davidson, of Florida State University, Michael Peres, Ph.D., of the Rochester Institute of Technology, Bonnie Stutski, photo editor of Smithsonian Magazine, Ellis Rubenstein, president of the New York Academy of Sciences, and Ted Salmon, Ph.D., of the University of North Carolina.
