We would like to thank all the budding photographers who entered our 2011 "What inspired you to be a biologist?" photography competition. We had over 250 entries into the competition and it was wonderful to see the many ways in which our entrants were inspired by the biological world.
You can view the twelve finalists from our competition by clicking on the links below.
Prints of all these images, as well as images from the 2010 and 2012 competitions, are available for purchase.
**Please note that photographs have been modified to fit in with the file size requirements of the website. To view all finalists in their unmodified form please view the album on our facebook page here.**
The winner, runner-up and highly commended entries were announced at the Science Communication and Photography Awards at Charles Darwin House on 2nd November 2011.
