ASSAB Photo & Video Competition

We hold an annual photo competition at the ASSAB conference. Photographs by members are put up on large display panels. Some prize-winning photographs from the past few years are displayed below.

Photo and Video Competition

At ASSAB 2016 conference, we will be running a competition for the best photo and video.

There are three categories for the best photograph:

1. An animal doing something to another animal

2. Best invertebrate.

3. Best vertebrate.

Instructions for Photograph entries

Maximum 1 photograph per person in each category

Please print and bring your photographs (no size limit) with your name at the back.

Bring your entries to the conference and we will accept them during your registration on site.

Photos will be displayed at the conference.

Please send an e-mail to assab.contest@gmail.com to let us know how many photos you are bringing so we can organise space to hang them.

Deadline to notify us is 20 June 2016.

Instructions for Video entries

Maximum video duration is 30 seconds.

You can enter as many videos as you prefer!

Send an e-mail to assab.contest@gmail.com who will then invite you to a Dropbox folder where you can upload your video/s.

Videos will be played at the conference, and just before the AGM.

All delegates will be able to vote for the best photograph and the best video (one vote per delegate and category).
