Royal Society of Biology Photography Competition 2020


Saturday, 4 April 2020

24 July 2020

Who may enter
Entrants must not be professional photographers. 

The competition is organised by the Royal Society of Biology.

‘Our changing world’ is the theme of the competition in 2020.

Life on Earth is dynamic and we invite you to capture these transformations.

Your photograph could illustrate the changes which occur within nature, including metamorphosis and shifts from young to adult. You might wish to depict how habitats develop during ecological succession, how wildlife adapts, or the impacts humans have on nature. We also welcome entries that explore this theme at the cellular, genetic and molecular level, exploring how life can change at a variety of different scales.

Each entrant can submit up to three photographs for the competition.
