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 Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn using the hashtags #MicrobeArt2023 and #InternationalMicroorganismDay.
