nikon small world competition

The Nikon Small World Competion(Exploring the beauty of Science) is an annual event and
although covers a wide range of topics we only focus on the 'stones'. Founded in in 1974 the
entries are superb, 2013 saw over 2000 entries from over 80 countries.
To quote “Over the last several years, the competition has grown by over 150% and
international submissions have more than doubled”.

Small World is widely regarded as the leading forum for recognizing the art, proficiency
and photographic excellence involved in photomicrography. The submissions are evaluated
on originality, informational content, technical proficiency and visual impact.
