There are three micrograph categories: (1) recently published micrographs, (2) an open category for any micrograph, and (3) short video clips including animations of 3D reconstructions. While you are welcome to submit any micrograph to the open category, the chances of reaching finalist status are greater for the categories of published micrographs and video micrographs because of the expected smaller number of entries.
