As part of Biology Week 2017, the RSB invited people of all ages to create biology-themed art attacks: BioArtAttacks! We invited lab groups, classes, friends and individuals to get creative and bring science and art together. 

We received over 70 high quality and exciting entries, including collages, sculptures, stop motion videos and even cakes. The whole spectrum of biology was represented, from plant science to neuroscience.

The winners will be announced Wednesday 1 November, and the three entries with the most votes will win a set of art supplies to help the artists make even more wonderful, biology inspired artwork.

Vote for your favourite entry now on our online poll.
