The Wellcome Image Awards celebrate creative and captivating images, bringing to life a wealth of scientific and medical discovery. From detailed microscopy and clinical photography to illustration, the Awards are an opportunity to showcase images that capture the wonder of science.

These striking images form the 13th Wellcome Image Awards and recognise the creators of the most informative, striking and technically excellent images among acquisitions to Wellcome Images' collection. The winners are chosen by a panel of expert judges from science research and communication including the National Institute for Medical Research, the BBC, Nature, Focus magazine, and the Guardian newspaper. Collaboration with the Koch Institute of Integrative Cancer Care at Massachusetts Institute of Technology has brought images from their ground-breaking research into the Awards.

Wellcome Images is one of the world's leading sources of images of medicine and its history, ranging from ancient civilisation and social history to contemporary healthcare, biomedical science and clinical medicine. Over 180,000 images ranging from manuscripts, rare books, archives and paintings to X-rays, clinical photography and scanning electron micrographs are available on the Wellcome Images website.
