From a map of Mars to the microscopic surface of a leaf that only looks like an alien landscape, the winners of this year’s NC State Research Image Contest captured the scope and beauty to be found in seeking to understand the world around us.

The contest was open to faculty, staff, graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. The program is funded by NC State’s Graduate School and Office of Research, Innovation, and Economic Development, with support from University Communications and the College of Sciences.

The list of winners is below. You can get an in-depth description of the winning entries in each category by clicking on the category headline, or see the full list of related posts here. A slideshow of all the winning entries (except the videos) can be found on Flickr.
