Nikon has announced the winners of the 2020 Small World Photomicrography Competition and has once again shared some of the winning and honored images with us. The contest invites photographers and scientists to submit images of all things visible under a microscope. More than 2,000 entries were received from 90 countries in 2020, the 46th year of the competition.

More astounding photos at “Photographing the Microscopic: Winners of Nikon Small World 2020.”

All of the winners are here; links to winners in other categories (e.g., video), here.

As we get small, we might recall that it was on this date in 1958 that Patricia Bay Haroski, a secretary at the State Farm Insurance Company, registered Boss’s Day with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Haroski chose the date because it was the birthday of her boss… who was also her father.
