Royal Society of Biology Launches Photography Competition 2019


International Biology photography competition opens for entries on the theme 'Capturing movement'

'Capturing movement' is the theme of this year's Royal Society of Biology Photography Competition. Life on Earth is constantly changing, and we invite you to photograph nature in motion.

You might wish to explore the locomotion and migration of animals or the growth and colonisation of plants and fungi. Your photograph could depict the act of flying, hunting, playing and swimming, or the bones, muscles and other biological structures that help perform these actions. We also welcome entries that explore this theme at the cellular or molecular level, illustrating the dynamic world only revealed to us with a microscope.

Supported by Eppendorf, there are two entry categories each with a cash prize: 18+ (£1,000) and under 18s (£500). Get snapping and submit up to three images by 26th July 2019.

Shortlisted entries and winners will be announced at the Society’s annual award ceremony during Biology Week 2019.
