Royal Society of Biology Photography Competition
"Patterns in Nature" is the theme of this year's competition. Life on Earth encompasses a myriad of regular forms, sequences and structures and The Royal Society of Biology invite you to capture these details of biology. The judges are looking for an original interpretation of the theme. There are £1,500 in cash prizes to be won!
The theme of this year's contest is "Patterns in Nature".
You might wish to explore how animals use spots, stripes and other shapes to camouflage and signal; or capture the collective arrangement of wildlife in colonies, herds and shoals. Your photograph could depict the spirals and symmetries of the plant kingdom to the meanders and tessellations as seen in wider landscapes.
Entries that explore this theme at a molecular or cellular level are also welcome, illustrating regular patterns that can only be observed with the aid of a microscope such as cell division and gene expression.
Photographers from all countries and of any age are able to enter this contest. Professional photographers (those who earn more than half their income from photography) are not eligible to enter.
This contest is free to enter.
Photographer of the Year (18 and over) - £1,000 top prize
Young Photographer of the Year (under 18) - £500 top prize
