Nikon's Small World Contest Results Out

The 2012 Nikon International Small World photography contest's winners have been announced today i. e. October 23, a report has unveiled newly. The competition was organized in 1974, with an aim to honour the beautiful images captured with the help of a microscope.

As per the report, the images captured this way are known as photomicrographs. The top 20 pictures are chosen each year by a panel of judges along with some honorable mentions. And this year, the image containing the blood-brain barrier in an embryo of a live zebrafish has been kept at the top position.

Amongst other winners are the images of an ant carrying her larva, a teensy bat embryo hiding its eyes with wings and wobbly-looking newborn spiderlings. The second place has been grabbed by Walter Piorkowski's creepy-cute picture of newborn lynx spiderlings.

Besides, at the third place is a wispy color-coded image containing human bone cancer components that had been taken by the National Institutes of Health's Dylan Burnette.

"We are proud that this competition is able to demonstrate the true power of scientific imaging and its relevance to both the scientific communities as well as the general public" sources quoted communications manager of Nikon Instruments Eric Flem as asserting.
