How Biology Can Save the World – photography competition short list announced
Earlier this week, the Judging Panel for our “How Biology Can Save the World” photography competition met to decide the most striking images that depicted current biological issues. We received hundreds of fantastic entries and the panel had a hard job whittling it down to just twelve short-listed photographs. The chosen images cover a range of subjects, including food security, species conservation, biofuels, pollution, climate change and water shortage.
On the judging panel were:
Catherine Draycott (Chair) – Head, Wellcome Images
Neil Aldridge – Conservation photojournalist
Linda Pitkin – Underwater photographer
Sophie Stafford – Editor, BBC Wildlife
The competition was only open to amateur photographers and there is a Photographer of the Year and Young Photographer of the Year category. The winner, runner-up and highly commended entries for each category will be announced at the Science Communication and Photography Awards on the 16th October at Charles Darwin House, London, as part of Biology Week 2012.
