The jury announced the winners of the 44th International Microphotographic Competition of the Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition 2018. First place went to photographer Yousef Al Habshi from the United Arab Emirates, author of the image of the eye of the beetle Metapocyrtus Subquadrulifer, which is a compilation of 128 microphotographs. The second place was awarded to Rogelio Moreno for a photo of a fern corpus – a group of sporangia, organs producing disputes. The third place was taken by Saulius Gugis, who captured the Philaenus Spumarius – a cicada insect capable of producing foam.

In total, 92 photos were selected from nearly 2.5 thousand photographs participating in the competition. All of them are made using a microscope equipped with special photographic equipment, with a subsequent increase in frame size from 3 to 20 times. Here we publish the best works of the winners of Nikon Small World competition.
