Olympus BioScapes

  • Beautiful image collection
  • None

Just like other competitions of its kind, the Olympus BioScapes International Digital Imaging Competition provides wide-eyed scientists and the general public with some of the most beautiful and visually arresting images of the microscopic natural world. On the BioScapes website visitors can view the gallery of winning and honorable mention submissions from the years 2004-2013. The majority of the entries are still photographs, although some of the entries are actually short videos. Each photo/video is accompanied by a brief text description of the submission, including the author’s name, place of employment, and technique used to capture the image. Beyond the image gallery, the BioScapes website includes downloadable screen savers of some of the winning images, links to other microscopy and image websites, and dates of the “museum tour,” an actual touring exhibition open to the public featuring selected images from the competition. Naturally, the site also includes instructions for entering next year’s competition.
