These updates, initiated last year, were designed to encourage participation and to simplify the pro- cess for participants to submit entries. There are now just five different classes of competition covering all fields of optical and electron microscopy: Class 1: Optical Microscopy—All Materials Class 2: Electron Microscopy—All Materials Class 3: Student Entries—All Materials (Undergraduate or Graduate Students Only) Class 4: Artistic Microscopy (Color)—All Materials Class 5: Artistic Microscopy (Black & White)—All Materials All of the classes offer increased prize money, as estab- lished last year. Best-In-Show receives the most prestigious award available in the field of metallography, the Jacquet- Lucas Award, which includes a cash prize of $3000.
