MELVILLE, NY--The Nikon 2004 Small World Photomicrography Competition celebrates 30 years. Nikon Instruments Inc., a microscope and digital imaging technology manufacturer, sponsors the annual contest to celebrate the possibilities of photography through microscopes. This year, the winners were unveiled October 6 at the Good Morning America studios in Times Square and will begin a museum tour across the country in January.

Lee Shuett, executive vice president of Nikon Instruments says, "The photographs featured in the gallery of art demonstrate scientific curiosity blended with extraordinary artistic sensibility."

Out of 1,200 submitted images this year, 20 were selected for exhibition. This year's first prize was awarded to Seth Coe-Sullivan from MIT's department of electrical engineering and computer sciences in Cambridge, MA. Coe-Sullivan's winning image was a 200X-zoomed quantum dot nanocrystals deposited on a silicon substrate.

Eric Flem, communications manager for the company says of the winning images, "These photos allow us to share in the special moments of discovery that spark scientific curiosity, and can serve as inspiration to aspiring scientists."
