Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition

The Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition (here featured at the Boston Big Picture, 38 photos) lets us see beyond the capabilities of our unaided eyes. Almost 2000 entries from 70 countries vied for recognition in the 37th annual contest, which celebrates photography through a microscope. Images two through 21 showcase the contest’s winners in order, and are followed by a selection of other outstanding works. Scientists and photographers turned their attention on a wide range of subjects, both living and man-made, from lacewing larva to charged couple devices, sometimes magnifying them over 2000 times their original size.

The 2012 competition has a deadline, for entries, until the end of april 2012. Check here for the Nikon’s Small World website.

Here’s the complete archive of the competition (all pictures) way back until 1977.
