Take Your Best Shot! 2016 JEOL SEM/TEM/EPMA Image Contest

JEOL SEM, TEM and EPMA users, you are the experts in your field of research and analysis. We're proud to be able to showcase your images and to award a prize each month, with a Grand Prize winner at the end of the year.

Here are the contest guidelines:

  • Our panel of SEM/TEM/EPMA applications people will select a winning image each month for 2016. Each image is eligible to win throughout the year, so may be chosen in any of the upcoming months for that calendar year.
  • The person submitting the winning image for the month will receive a $100 Amazon gift certificate.
  • There will be two Grand Prize winners selected at the end of the year. One for a materials image and one for a biological image. Each winner will be awarded a $300 American Express gift certificate. 
  • At the end of the year we will print a calendar on a poster of all 12 winning images for our customers.
  • Only images from JEOL SEM/TEM/EPMA are eligible.
