75th Anniversary: microbiology images

As part of the celebrations for our 75th anniversary, we invite the microbiology community to submit images related to the microbiological world to help highlight how microbiology answers big questions by giving us knowledge of very small things. 

We welcome images of your science, of nature, of people, places and events that will inspire, inform and demonstrate how the study of microbes helps us to understand our world and our place within it. Visit our image gallery for some inspiration. 

The aim of the project is to help promote the research efforts and journeys of microbiologists across our community. 

Promote your work in a visual showcase of science in 2020. Submitted images will be promoted across activities during our 75th anniversary year. We will credit all names supplied as part of image submissions.
You can share your involvement via Twitter using the hashtags #MicroImages and #MicrobioSoc75th.

Your images

As part of the celebrations for our anniversary, we invite the microbiology community to submit images related to the microbiological world to help highlight how microbiology answers big questions by giving us knowledge of very small things. 

We welcome images of your science, of nature, of people, places and events that will inspire, inform and demonstrate how the study of microbes helps us to understand our world and our place within it. 

We know microbes are very diverse, they are fascinating and modern imaging techniques show they can be very beautiful. We would like to give others in the field a glimpse of your research, your collaborations and the science of microbiology. We are looking for significant high-quality photos such as a eureka moment in your lab, or a process you have been able to capture using imagery, a microscopical photo that shows the structure of the microbe you work on, a special encounter or a meeting with one of your heroes.
