We run a number of competitions for school students as well as a photography competition for biology enthusiasts.
An annual competition that aims to stimulate a curiosity for the natural world and encourage students to take an interest in biology beyond the school curriculum.

An annual biology photography competition which invites amateurs to submit photographs on a particular theme. Each year, the competition's judges look for an original interpretation of this theme. Participants can enter in one of two categories: Photographer of the Year (18 and over) with a £1000 top prize, or Young Photographer of the Year (under 18) with a £500 top prize.
The Photography Competition 2018 theme was 'Patterns in nature'.
