EM Image Contest

Every year, Thermo Fisher Scientific instrument owners are invited to submit their best images for a chance to showcase their skill, research and creativity. Images from the contest have been featured on numerous news outlets including NBC News and Huffington Post. In 2012, we launched the 'Explore the Unseen' image contest in partnership with National Geographic. This partnership was born out of Thermo Fisher Scientific and National Geographic's joint effort on 'Mysteries of the Unseen World'—a film that shows audiences aspects of the world that are not visible to the naked eye. A portion of the film utilizes electron microscopy to allow people to see the smallest of the small, from the tiniest living organisms to the atoms and molecules that ultimately compose everything we know. 

We celebrate the achievements of our customers. They strive to resolve the world's problems through exploration and discovery. They seek to understand the mechanisms of life, make electronics that are more powerful and efficient, increase the availability of scarce natural resources, and sustain our environment through the development of novel materials and processes. During our annual image contest, we give our customers the opportunity to show that their work is not only scientifically relevant but also creative, artistic, and beautiful. The images that follow are just a sampling of our customers' efforts. We are proud to say that these images were captured using our instruments.
