The Royal Society of Biology annual photography competition invites amateurs to submit photographs for 2020 on a particular theme.
The theme for 2020 is: ‘Our changing world‘ and the competition is dedicated to capturing the transformations and dynamics of the life on Earth.
Two cash prizes will be awarded, £1,000 to the Photographer of the Year (18 and over) and £500 to the Young Photographer of the Year (under 18).
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. The Royal Society of Biology also welcomes entries that explore this theme at the cellular, genetic and molecular level, exploring how life can change at a variety of different scales.
Shortlisted entrants will be notified in September. The full details of the winner, runner-up and highly commended entries will be announced for the first time at the Royal Society of Biology Annual Awards Ceremony which will take place on Thursday 8th October 2020.
