Oct 12 2019 Read 547 Times

The Royal Society of Biology (RBS)  announced the winners of its 2019 Photographer of the Year and Young Photographer of the Year competition during its Annual Awards Ceremony held at the Francis Crick Institute (Oct 10).

Tim Harris from Nature Picture Library and judge for the RSB Photography competition presented the shortlisted and winning pictures. Supported by Eppendorf, this year’s theme was ‘Capturing movement’.

The Young Photographer of the Year was presented to Carlos Perez Naval for his entry ‘Fighting’, winning £500.

The Photographer of the Year (18+) was awarded to Nick Edwards for his ‘Demob Happy’ photograph taken on the Isle of Wight for which he won &1000.

Tim said of the winning entries: “All the judges were impressed by the quality of entries. The diversity of subjects, locations and approaches to the subject made our task in selecting the winning photographs a tough, but rewarding one.”

At 14, the winner of the under-18 category, Carlos Perez Naval, who submitted a pin-sharp shot of white-headed ducks fighting, clearly has a great future in nature photography.

The overall competition winner was Nick Edward’s soldier beetle image which captured movement in a direct and technically sophisticated way, flying the flag for invertebrates at a time when recognising their key role in biodiversity has never been more important.”

The competition was judged by Tim Harris, Nature Library and Bluegreen Pictures; Tom Hartman, program chair of MSc in Biological Photography and Imaging at the University of Nottingham; Alex Hyde, natural history photographer and lecturer at the University of Nottingham; and Linda Pitkin, underwater photographer.
