Could you be the next Science Photographer of the Year?

Entries are now being accepted for The Royal Photographic Society’s new Science Photographer of the Year competition 2019.

There are two categories up for grabs this year; Science Photographer of the Year and Young Science Photographer of the Year (18 years and under).

Entrants are required to take a visually appealing picture that tells a science story either with a camera or smart phone and the winners will be announced at an event in London in October.

The winning photographs will be chosen by an expert panel of selectors including TV Science Presenter Dallas Campbell. 

“I am delighted to be involved in this competition. Science is all around us whether it be engineering, astronomy, the microscopic world or nature and what’s great is that you don’t even need professional camera equipment to capture it. The competition makes science accessible to everyone via the readily available medium of photography and I am really looking forward to seeing the entries we receive,” says Campbell

The competition is £15 to enter (£12 for RPS members) and up to five images can be uploaded. Entry is free for 18s and under. Simply register and upload images at Closing date is midnight on Friday 19th July 2019.
