Images with Impact: the Great British Bioscience Image Competition

The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) have launched a competition seeking the best pictures from students that represent how life sciences are changing the world, in areas like: food, farming, bioenergy, biotech, industry and health.
"Any type of image can be entered: photography, visualisations and even illustrations. You could be looking down a microscope, panning across farming landscapes or capturing a new snazzy piece of science technology. We want to see photos, graphics, images, or anything visual that shows us the beauty of science and its impact."
There's a total prize fund of over 2,400 up for grabs; if pure science doesn't drive you, imagine the top prize of 1000 in your back pocket!
The deadline is 6th October, just at the beginning of fresher's week so no essay excuses!
Get snapping and see the website or video for more details.
