The Royal Society of Biology annual photography competition invites amateurs to submit photographs on a particular theme; ‘Capturing movement’ is the theme of this year’s competition. Life on Earth is constantly changing, and this is an invitation to photograph nature in motion.

The Competition Concept:

You might wish to explore the locomotion and migration of animals or the growth and colonization of plants and fungi. The photograph could depict the act of flying, hunting, playing and swimming, or the bones, muscles and other biological structures that help perform these actions. They also welcome entries that explore this theme at the cellular or molecular level, illustrating the dynamic world only revealed with a microscope.


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


  1. Entrants can enter either the Photographer of the Year category or the Young Photographer of the Year category.
  2. Each entrant may enter up to three photographs into the competition.
  3. Images should be high-resolution JPEG or PNG files and no larger than 10MB in size.
  4. Entrants must fill in all sections of the entry form.
  5. Please read the competition's full terms and conditions before entering and submitting your photographs.
