Fungi and other soil microbes are critical to the health of soil and our food systems yet ‘conservation biodiversity’ often overlooks them for more charismatic wildlife.  Fungi by Alan Hern | Flickr | CC BY 2.0

The deadline for the British Ecological Society’s Annual Photography Competition, Capturing Ecology is fast approaching —Friday, 22 September at 17:00 (BST)! The competition is open to all current members of BES and submissions are welcome in the following categories:

  1. Up Close and Personal
    An image displaying the intricacy of nature using close up or macro photography. Creative and abstract imagery is welcomed and may include images denoting patterns, symmetry, form, and the study of micro-organisms.
  2. Dynamic Ecosystems
    Demonstrate the relationships within an ecosystem or community. There should be a clear emphasis on interactions between different species.
  3. Individuals and Populations
    A unique look at a species in its environment, either alone or as a population. There can be other species in the picture, but the emphasis should clearly be on one.
  4. Ecology and Society
    With the high percentage of our population living in urban communities, photos should be an original look at how people and society engage with its environment and wildlife.
  5. Ecology in Action
    Demonstrate inspiring work relating to the practice of ecology with a single striking image showcasing Ecology in Action.
  6. The Art of Ecology
    This is your chance to show us your artistic flare, with a creative and original take on photography denoting ecology.

  • I guess, The competence have to face a tight competition here. Ecology is tough subjects for capturing. Proper capturing can only help it to truly visualize the true meaning.
