Following the hugely successful inaugural Royal Society Publishing Photography Competition last year, I am pleased to announce that the 2016 competition has now launched and is open for submissions. Please tell your colleagues and students about this!
The competition is open to all from now until the 1st June, and the winners will be chosen by our panel of judges; Alex Badyaev (University of Arizona), Claire Spottiswoode (University of Cambridge), Ulrike Muller (California State University) and David Maitland (professional nature photographer). Entries can be submitted via our online form here.
This year the competition includes the following categories: Behaviour, Ecology and Environmental Science, Evolutionary Biology, and Micro-Imaging. The winners will be notified in August, and selected entries will be exhibited online and here at the Royal Society. The overall winner will receive £500 and winners of the categories not chosen as the overall winner will receive £250.
This year the competition will be run in collaboration between Biology Letters, Interface, Open Biology, Open Science, Philosophical Transactions B and Proceedings B.
