Luminar Bug Photography Awards

We’ve partnered with Photocrowd to launch the inaugural year of the Luminar Bug Photography Awards – showcasing the best invertebrates photography from around the world, and raising vital funds for Buglife.
£23,000 worth prizes are to be won across 11 categories focusing on different bug species, and also including a mobile phone category and youth category for 13-17 year olds. The grand prize winner takes home £2,500 cash and the title of ‘Bug Photographer of the Year 2020’.
The awards are generously sponsored by Skylum, who are giving away 60-day free trials of their award-winning photo editor Luminar 4 – an unmissable opportunity for anyone interested in creating amazing photos for the Bug Awards, or for anything else! Click here to download your free trial today.
Entries will be judged by an esteemed panel of professionals from the worlds of conservation, photography, television and academia, including Buglife President Germain Greer, and vice-president Nick Baker.
