The Nancy Rothwell Award, sponsored by the Royal Society of Biology, celebrates artwork that captures the intricacies of anatomy, and for this year’s competition more than 500 pieces were submitted by young artists from across the globe.

Sixth Former Holly Read’s (N) anatomical drawing of a bottlenose dolphin was among the entries shortlisted for the top award in the 15-18 category, which was judged by a panel of biologists and illustrators.

Timothy Pond, an illustrator based at the Zoological Society of London and member of the judging panel said: “The quality of the illustration and drawing techniques is outstanding. Visualisation skills are exceptionally high amongst all the candidates, whether this is illustrating the concave trunking of a seahorse or the colossal size of the mandibles on a swarm-raiding army ant.”
