Wiki Science Competition
Thanks for your contribution to the Wiki Science Competition! I just wanted to confirm that you produced the image yourself. Also, have they been published elsewhere? You can respond by editing below. Thanks! Antony-22 (talk) 22:15, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
Hi Antony! Yes, I prepared the cell sample (in a BSL-4 setting), and examined the finished sample in the scanning electron microscope. The photograph submitted was taken by me. The image, originally in black and white, was then colorized by me, much later. The image has not been published or used elsewhere....I colorized it exclusively for the Wiki Science Competition.

Wiki Science Competition 2019
Dear uploader of European Science Photo Competition 2015 and Wiki Science Competition 2017, we would like to remind you that Wiki Science Competition 2019 has started in the whole world. It is now completed in Russia (active in May), Ukraine and France (active during November), but it's still open in all the other countries.
If you are an expert user, please consider that images uploaded within the deadline can be included in any case in their national category even if not uploaded with the main interface.
Please keep in mind that there is a new category this year, i.e. "nature and wildlife".
If you already took part in a country that has completed its upload phase, please consider improving the description in English of your files (click on the edit button), since such description is what the international jury will use to evaluate them. World finalists will be finalized after March 2020.
Sorry for bothering you and have a nice wiki.
