Do you paint natural science artwork? The field includes illustrations for museums, science magazines, nature textbooks, and field guides.

Subjects include things like birds, butterflies, flowers, fish or dinosaurs. It can't be generic: You have to know the Latin name of what you're painting and it has to be scientifically accurate. 

This premier international exhibition in the field happens every two years, and it is called Focus on Nature. The next exhibition will be in 2019 in Binghamton, New York. They just announced a call for entries. 

It's free to enter.  Four images max. Deadline is October 1. Keep in mind that the jury includes both an artist and a scientist, and the scientific content counts. Here's the entry form and here's more information about the show.
