Heidelberg Engineering is a high tech medical device company which designs, manufactures, and distributes diagnostic instruments for eye care professionals.  The company’s products are used around the world by ophthalmologists and optometrists to scan patients’ eyes for signs of disease and to assist in the management of patients found to have disease.  Early recognition of disease helps to delay and prevent the most common causes of blindness.

An international review board with members from the private and public sector, clinicians and basic researchers had a tough job to nominate the best pictures. It was very difficult to select those to win the attractive first three prizes, but at the end it was a clear vote:

The winners come from Spain (No 1; € 1.000,-), Singapore (No 2; € 600,-) and the United Kingdom (No 3; € 400,-)
