Winners of the 2015 Art of Science Photomicrography Contest
 

Congratulations to the winners of the 2015 Art of Science Photomicrography Contest! Thank you to everyone who submitted such interesting and beautiful artistic imagery to the contest, and a big thanks to everyone who voted on Instagram for the People's Choice Award winner!

The winning images will be featured on our 2015 calendar, which will be distributed in the January issue of Zebrafish Magazine, and the winners will be awarded a total of $2250.00 in cash prizes.

The People's Choice Award image will be featured on a T-shirt sold to raise scholarship funding for first time attendees for the Zebrafish Husbandry Workshop or Zebrafish International Meeting (in the US). The rules for applying for one of these scholarships will be announced in early 2015.

Check out the finalists in the 2015 Contest on our Instagram page, and see past winners and calendar designs on our Art of Science Photomicrography Contest webpage.
