The Royal Society Publishing Photography Competition celebrates the power of photography in capturing scientific phenomena happening all around us, and the role great images play in making science accessible to a wide audience.
The competition is only open to scientists, and is open for entries until 30 August 2019. The winners will be announced in December 2019. Find out how to enter and please read our Terms and Conditions before entering.
To celebrate the fifth anniversary of the competition, the overall winner will receive £1,000 and the category winners will each win £500. Scientists can enter an image in any of our five categories: Astronomy, Behaviour, Earth science and climatology, Ecology and environmental science, and Micro-imaging.
The Royal Society Publishing Photography Competition is sponsored by the journals of the Royal Society. Visit our journals homepage to view the full portfolio and read our published research.
