Society of Biology Photography Award 2014 – Design You Trust

Society of Biology Photography Award 2014

From rural life in India to a chick growing inside its embryo and a sea turtle eating a purple jellyfish, the Society of Biology has released their stunning photography competition shortlist. This year’s theme of Home, Habitat and Shelter drew almost 800 entries from amateur photographers competing to win the top prizes of £1,000 for over-18s and £500 for younger participants. The organisers encouraged photographers to “think creatively about the unique ways animals, plants and organisms exploit their environment in order to survive”. Photographic insights into biodiversity, genetic diversity and conversation issues were encouraged, as were pieces using light microscope techniques to explore the theme from another angle.
