Snails and Slugs

Part of Buglife Bug Photography Awards 2021

Open Judging Results

Legless gastropods are the focus of this category – namely slugs or snails. They can be found on land or in the water, and are characterised by having a single long soft foot.

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.

The 'Snails and Slugs' category is sponsored by ON1, who are giving away lots of prizes across all categories. Category prizes also include £250 cash, plus more!

  • 1st place will win the ON1 Professional Plugin Bundle 2021.5 (valued at $149.99 USD), £250 (GBP) cash, a 1-year Photocrowd ‘Master’ subscription worth £90 (GBP), a 1-year Buglife membership worth £36 (GBP), Luminar AI worth $99 (USD).

  • 2nd place will win ON1 Photo RAW 2021.5 (valued at $99.99 USD).

  • 2nd & 3rd place will win a 1-year Photocrowd 'Challenger' subscription worth £30 (GBP).

  • Shortlisted images* will be featured in an exclusive online gallery. All shortlisted photographers will receive a one year membership to Buglife (£36 each).

(*) The size of each shortlist will be determined by the quality and number of entries in each category.
