Society of Biology Competition

Nothing to do now that exams are over????

Why not take part in this photography competition?

How Biology Can Save the World 2012 Photography Competition

The Society of Biology believes the solutions to the world’s biggest problems will be found within the biosciences. Biology is at the heart of many challenges we now face, including: food security, disease, sustainability, climate change, species extinction, an aging population, and more.

They want to see, in pictures, the biological problems and solutions that are important to you. This could be a piece of research that has the potential to cure disease, an environmental issue that needs more urgent attention, or a subject matter that you are particularly passionate about.

Photography has the power to capture the attention and interest of everyone, leaving them wanting to find out more and asking their own questions about what they see. Entries should aim to make the audience mindful about the issue that is being illustrated.  

There are two categories of award:

  • Photographer of the Year (over 18) – Prize £1000
  • Young Photographer of the Year (18 and under) – Prize £500

(There will be additional prizes for the runner-up and highly commended entries to each competition)

Closing date: midnight on 31st July 2012

The competition is open to both members and non-members of the Society of Biology. It is only open to amateur photographers and entrants can submit up to three photographs to the competition.
