Royal Society of Biology Photo Competition 2020

Photographer of the Year (18 and over) - £1,000 top prize

The Royal Society of Biology annual photography competition invites amateurs to submit photographs on a particular theme. ‘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.


There are two categories in the competition, each with a cash prize:

- Photographer of the Year (18 and over) - £1,000 top prize
- Young Photographer of the Year (under 18) - £500 top prize


The competition is open to anyone
