National Insect Week returns in 2022
Our biennial photography competition opens during National Insect Week, see past winning entries and entry information on our Photography pages.
National Insect Week encourages people of all ages to learn more about insects.
Every two years, the Royal Entomological Society organises the week, supported by a large number of partner organisations with interests in the science, natural history and conservation of insects.
