The Royal Society of Biology is holding a photography competition on the theme of ‘capturing movement’. We are holding a school competition to find the best photos to put forward into this national competition. The school competition will be in three age categories, Prep pupils, Senior pupils and adults (both parents and staff). You may submit up to 3 photographs. These can be printed out and handed in at Reception or emailed directly to Mrs Mann at There will be a prize for each age group. The deadline for the school competition is Friday 3rd May so you have the Easter holidays to take your best shot!

You might wish to explore the locomotion and migration of animals or the growth and colonisation of plants and fungi. Your photograph could depict the act of flying, hunting, playing and swimming, or the bones, muscles and other biological structures that help perform these actions. We also welcome entries that explore this theme at the cellular or molecular level, illustrating the dynamic world only revealed to us with a microscope.

The prizes for the national competition are:

  • Photographer of the Year (18 and over) – £1,000 top prize
  • Young Photographer of the Year (under 18) – £500 top prize

We look forward to seeing your best photos. Good luck!
