How to enter BioArtAttack 3D

The BioArtAttack 3D competition has closed for entries.

Choosing our winners 

A judging panel of RSB staff will decide on a winner and runner up for both the individual category and group entry category. We will announce the winners in March 2024.

The BioArtAttack winners in each category will receive a prize for their creation.

Entries will be judged on:

  • the variety of materials used
  • the variety of creative skills used
  • the aesthetic quality of the piece
  • the originality of the piece 
  • how well the piece captures the biological basis of the subject matter


From the very big to the very small: BioArtAttack 3D entries can take inspiration from the smallest parts of the natural world that only a microscope can see: think cell structures, bacterial colonies and microscopic organisms.

Entries could instead feature environments or ecosystems. Art could be based around great savannahs, wide-open plains, the deep oceans or immense rainforests and the huge range of diversity contained within them.

Hands-on science: Lab or field equipment could be the focus of your artwork, with fascinating tools and apparatus being used by scientists to provide ways to make wonderful discoveries.

Scientific concepts: Your BioArtAttack could help explain a biological concept, theory or area of biology that particularly interests you.

Art can be a great way to visualise something that may seem complex or difficult to understand.
