Small-scale art

Got an eye for nanoscale art? The 2009 Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition welcomes the public to pick its favorite image, to be held alongside other finalists chosen from 2,000 entries along with judges' selections of the year's "most visually stunning and technically proficient" micrographic images. Voting at is open until Oct. 2. There's also an "Identify the Image" game to correctly ID the five finalist micrographs.
The annual Nikon Instruments-sponsored show, now in its 35th year, is the preeminent showcase for beauty and complexity of life as seen through light microscopes, as captured across a wide variety of scientific disciplines.
Top selections will be announced on Oct.15 at New York City's Astor Center, and exhibited in a full-color calendar and 24-city national museum tour.
