Photography blurs the lines between science and art. Science & Tech have rounded up some science related photography competitions that you can enter this summer.
Wildlife and landscape photography is becoming increasingly popular and is really accessible to students. You may only have to go as far as your own back garden to capture nature’s incredible beauty. With many students off travelling this summer there are even more opportunities to take great photographs.
Science & Tech have rounded up some science related photography competitions that you can enter this summer. There are chances to win amazing prizes, including cash, which can make a big difference to your summer plans.
The entry requirements are often very broad and all competitions have no or very cheap entry fees but please read the individual Terms & Conditions before entering each competition. So wether you are a budding photographer or a novice armed with a smartphone don’t forget to look out for nature photo opportunities this summer.
