Microbe masterpieces contest

Cultivate your creativity

The trillions of microbes in your body are crucial to life yet invisible to the naked eye. Their variety and hidden beauty are things scientists can showcase and celebrate. Let’s have fun doing that in the Microbe Masterpieces contest. To enter:
  • Create an artwork of a microbe or microorganism colony
  • Sketch, paint, sculpt, photograph – use ANY technique you like
  • Make an image of your artwork, post it on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with #MicrobeMasterpieces and tag @QIAGEN. So we can see your image, be sure to make your Instagram profile PUBLIC during the contest
  • Look for your artwork in our social wall below – you could win a copy of the exclusive Gut Check microbiome game

So what kind of artwork are you thinking of creating? There are many ways you can show the beauty and variety of microbes in your exhibits. Take a look at the contest rules for ideas and the details about the contest. Be sure to get your entry in before the contest closes on Sept 1.
