Welcome to the Sponsors Page
In order to provide attractive prizes that reward the hard work of the entrants
we need the support of commercial sponsors. In addition,
we require funding for
printing and framing the winning images and for costs associated
with the prize award ceremony. We are very grateful therefore
for this year's
sponsorship from the following companies:
Peqlab have contributed generously to the prize fund
and, in a new imaginative venture, have funded a conference travel bursary to the tune of £300 for the best image submitted by a PhD student. The award will be made to help towards the often considerable costs of attending a scientific conference. Many thanks to Duncan Borthwick for offering this generous support.
Science Photolibrary, the world's leading supplier of science
images, have kindly contributed to the competition funds
and Rose Taylor (Creative Director) has agreed to give up some of her precious
