Hilda Canter-Lund Annual Photography Award

The Hilda Canter-Lund Annual Photography Award was established by the British Phycological Society in recognition of Hilda Canter-Lund, whose stunning photographs will be known to many phycologists. Her photomicrographs of freshwater algae combined high technical and aesthetic qualities whilst still capturing the quintessence of the organisms she was studying.

The BPS Council offers an annual award (currently £250) for a photograph on a phycological theme that best combines these informative, technical and aesthetic qualities. It can be of a micro- or macroalga, marine or freshwater, taken using any photographic medium. Shortlisted photographs will be placed on the BPS website after the closing date, and the winner will be announced during EPC6. The winning photograph will be displayed in the Angela Marmont Centre, within the Natural History Museum's Darwin Centre, London, UK. 

The competition is open to all (not just BPS members). The closing date will be the 24 June 2015.
