BSP Spring Conference Photographic Competition Open For Entries!

We have previously held a very successful photographic competition and we hope to revive this for this year’s BSP Spring Conference at Aberystwyth University @BSPaber2018.

For this year’s competition we have two categories:

1) My Favourite Parasite

2) Parasitology and Me.

To enter this year’s competition, please send a picture (photo or drawing) of your favourite parasite, or a picture of what parasitology is for you, to bsp2018@aber.ac.uk

DEADLINE for submissions 2nd APRIL.

Please also send a brief descriptor (max. 100 words) of your entry that can be used to explain the image.

We intend to exhibit all of the photos we receive at an exhibition at the BSP spring meeting.

The winner for each category will receive their photo, beautifully framed, at the meeting.
