Issued: Mon, 19 Feb 2018 12:53:00 GMT
Another great results evening for the PhotoScene competition results took place on Tuesday 13th February in the Boyd Orr Building. This annual photographic competition is run and funded by both The Glasgow Natural History Society and The Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health and Comparative Medicine and is now in its 7th year.
One of the 1st prize winners Dr Dave Bailey, a senior Lecturer from the Institute submitted the above photograph:
“I took this image during a dive at Elphinstone Reef in the Egyptian Red Sea during the Tropical Marine Biology field course in November 2016. The Divers are Dr Deborah McNeill (foreground), with Dr Neil Burns and undergrad student Kyle Maclaren (in the background). We're all delighted that this image was chosen - thank you to the judges.”
As always, there were a lot of fantastic images to choose from: 18 entrants provided a total of 74 excellent photographs. 6 entries received the first prize of £100 and 4 entries received the second prize of £50.
Before the results were announced those attending enjoyed talks from John and Margaret Lyth on the Natural History of Arran, followed by a talk from Anthony Payne on butterflies and moths common in the Austrian Tirol but rare or extinct in Britain. At the end of the evening the highly anticipated results were announced.
