Viewing something through an electron microscope may feel as if you're viewing it for the first time. The incredible instrument offers a close-up glimpse of whatever you choose to look at -- even tiny, everyday things, such as insects, crystals, and germs.
The company is partnering with National Geographic on the contest, and also on a film titled "Mysteries of the Unseen World." The film will feature images from the contest and provide a glimpse into how these cutting-edge images are advancing science.
Below, check out some images that were submitted this month. Winners will be announced in October.
