World of Insects Calendar

Every year, the ESA World of Insects Calendar showcases the stunning beauty of our arthropod peers through striking, world-class photography.

Photographs are selected by the ESA Committee on the World of Insects Calendar and must be of the highest aesthetic and technical quality. A call for photos is announced early in the year for the following year's calendar, which is published each year in November.
