Olympus competition to celebrate best light microscopy images
27 Jul 2017
Optics manufacturer Olympus is inviting entries for its annual Image of the Year European Life Science Light Microscopy Award.
“This competition gives researchers the opportunity to show the more artistic side of their work,” says Wolfgang Hempell, jury member and section manager Imaging and Microscopy at Olympus Europa.
“By organising the Image of the Year award we want to show that microscopy is more than just gathering data – there’s a real art to it.”

Participants should upload between one and three microscopy images that have been taken with Olympus equipment by using the form on the Image of the Year website. Photos must be accompanied by an explanation of what is depicted and the equipment used.
A jury of representatives from science and the arts will evaluate entries based on artistic and visual aspects, scientific impact, and microscope proficiency.
Entries can be uploaded until 31 October 2017, with winners selected and announced in November.
