The Royal Society Publishing Photography Competition closes for entries at midnight on 31 August. The overall winner will receive £500, while winners of the individual categories will receive £250.

The competition is open to scientists, and winning entries are chosen according to 2 key criteria: they should be aesthetically pleasing, and convey an interesting scientific phenomenon.
