All the Other Bugs

Part of Buglife Bug Photography Awards 2021

Open Judging Results

If you have an image of a bug that doesn't belong in one of the other categories, then this is the place for them. Examples include all aquatic bugs, shield bugs, cicadas, cockroaches, grasshoppers, lacewings, stoneflies, praying mantises, centipedes, millipedes and earwigs.

If you need to clarify whether a species you’ve shot should be included in this category, email with the name of the species.

Highly magnified imagery, such as close-ups of faces and body parts, can be submitted to this category, but is more likely to excel in the 'Extreme Close-Ups’ category.

'All the Other Bugs' is sponsored by MIOPS who have $700 USD of great gear to give away. There are additional prizes for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and shortlisted photographers.
