The Wellcome Image Awards is an annual competition celebrating creative and captivating images, bringing to life a wealth of scientific and medical discovery. From detailed microscopy and clinical photography to illustration, the Awards provide an opportunity to showcase images that capture the wonder of science.
Over the previous 14 competitions, winners have included a photograph of a living human brain, a reconstructed image of an aneurysm using computed tomography (an X-ray scanning technique that produces cross-sectional images), and a micrograph using fluorescence to capture the vascular system of a chicken embryo.
Thousands of entries were received for the 2014 competition and the eighteen winning images, will be showcased in a visually stunning exhibition that opens at W5 on 12 March 2014.
