‘Communication’ is the theme of this year’s Royal Society of Biology Photography Competition.
Life on Earth is constantly communicating and this year we invite you to capture these interactions.
Your photograph could depict the sharing of information within and between different species, such as in the colouration of feathers, flowers and fur. You may want to focus on the messages portrayed in courtship behaviour or territorial displays.
Your image could illustrate the signs and signals that help us understand the condition of ecosystems.
Royal Society of Biology also welcome entries that explore this year’s theme at the molecular or cellular level, illustrating signalling and other processes only revealed to us with the aid of a microscope.
Entrants must not be professional photographers.
