MARCH 21--The submission deadline of April 28, 2006, for entries in the 32nd Annual Nikon Small World Competition is rapidly approaching. This year Nikon (Melville, NY, USA; www.nikonusa.com) has advanced the date for entries in the Nikon Small World competition, which has provided both amateur and professional microscopists an opportunity to showcase their photographic skills made possible by the light microscope for more than 30 years.

Contestants are reminded they can submit a maximum of three images, either digitally at www.nikonsmallworld.com, or via film at Nikon Small World, 1300 Walt Whitman Road, Melville, NY 11747. Rules and entry forms are also available on the Web site.

Nikon will notify winners mid-summer, as the first- and second-place prize winners will receive Nikon products worth $3000 and $2000, respectively. In addition, the top 20 winning images will be highlighted at museums and science centers around the country as Nikon Small World embarks on its 2006--2007 Museum Tour.
