Royal Society of Biology Launches International Amateur Photography Competition


International Biology photography competition opens for entries on the theme 'Biology: from Big to Small'

Biology: from Big to Small is the theme of this years' Royal Society of Biology amateur photography competition. The competition invites photographers to explore interactions between the macro and the micro in biology - from tiny fish creating huge shoals, to algal blooms suffocating a river ecosystem, or microorganisms eating plastic waste in our oceans.

Supported by Eppendorf, the competition has two categories, each with a cash prize: Photographer of the Year (18 and over) with a top prize of £1,000; and Young Photographer of the Year (under 18) with a top prize of £500. Get snapping and submit up to three images by 31st August 2016.

Judging for the competition will take place in September and the winners will be announced at the Society’s annual award ceremony on Thursday 13th October during Biology Week 2016.
