The Royal Society of Biology annual photography competition invites amateurs to submit photographs on a particular theme.
‘Patterns in nature’ is the theme of this year’s competition. Life on Earth encompasses a myriad of regular forms, sequences and structures and we invite you to capture these details of biology. The judges are looking for an original interpretation of the theme
You might wish to explore how animals use spots, stripes and other shapes to camouflage and signal; or capture the collective arrangement of wildlife in colonies, herds and shoals. Your photograph could depict the spirals and symmetries of the plant kingdom to the meanders and tessellations as seen in wider landscapes.
We also welcome entries that explore this theme at a molecular or cellular level, illustrating regular patterns that can only be observed with the aid of a microscope such as cell division and gene expression.
