The challenge was to create a piece of art using microbes as the paint and agar as the canvas, and ASM members took their plating skills to the limit with their submissions. Congratulations to the winners of the 2015 Agar Art contest!
Our esteemed judges, Michele Banks, Jamie Henzy, Vincent Racaniello, Dennis Bray and Penny Chisholm, analyzed all 85 submissions for their creativity, design, and presentation, as well as on the written description - the scientific accuracy and appropriateness for a general audience.
Artists were encouraged to follow safety guidelines when creating their artwork.
