The Society of Biology’s amateur photography competition which is now open for entries; this year’s theme is ‘Feeding Life’. Every year we run the competition which is open to photography enthusiasts of any age (with two age categories).
Food provides the foundation to life. Not only can we not live without food, but the wrong diet can have serious health consequences. Biology research and field work play a vital role in understanding how all organisms on the planet receive the energy they need to keep on living.
We are seeking original photographs that encapsulate the topic ‘Feeding Life’. Your photograph could address a challenging issue like food security and waste, or malnutrition, obesity, and other diet-linked diseases. It could provide insight into the feeding behaviour of a plant or animal species including predators and parasites. Or it could illustrate how we are manipulating our diets using GM and other biological techniques. Whether illustrated on a global, organismal, cellular or molecular scale, your photograph should draw attention to the topic of food and biology in a unique and thought-provoking way.
There are 2 categories in the competition, each with a cash prize:
• Photographer of the Year (over 18) - £1000 top prize
• Young Photographer of the Year (under 18) - £500 top prize and a copy of Adobe software Photoshop Lightroom.
More information can be found at http://www.societyofbiology.org/photocomp and for some inspiration please also see our blog.
The deadline for entries is the 31st July 2013.
