The Royal Society of Biology Photography Competition 2020 is now open for entries. The Royal Society of Biology annual photography competition invites amateurs to submit photographs on a particular theme. This photo competition is free to participate in.

Our changing world is the theme of the competition in 2020. Life on Earth is dynamic and we invite you to capture these transformations.

Your photograph could illustrate the changes which occur within nature, including metamorphosis and shifts from young to adult. You might wish to depict how habitats develop during ecological succession, how wildlife adapts, or the impacts humans have on nature. We also welcome entries that explore this theme at the cellular, genetic and molecular levels, exploring how life can change at a variety of different scales.
