The Microbe Art Competition is an effort brought about to support the Portuguese Society for Microbiology (PSM) in promoting the International Microorganism Day on September 17. International Microorganism Day aims to raise awareness about the importance of microorganisms and microbiology research among the general public, and our contest supplemented these efforts.

People from all around the world were able to enter the Microbe Art Competition by posting their artistic entries on TwitterFacebook, and Instagram and using the hashtags #MicrobeArt2021 and #InternationalMicroorganismDay.
