Entries are now being accepted for the 2020 Science Photographer of the Year competition. This year there are two categories, general science and the science related to climate change. Each of these categories has groups for photographers aged under 18 – so why not get your pupils involved for their chance to win an Olympus camera!
The competition celebrates the many realms of science and the powerful role of photography in its development. The judges are looking for images showing science in action, telling stories behind scientific exploration, and illustrating the many fascinating and crucial ways that science impacts our lives, and our natural world, every day. The new category ‘Climate Change’ is for images that address global environmental and ecological issues.
Creating amazing pictures of science is a lot easier than you think, can be a lot of fun and can be captured on anything from a high-end camera to a smartphone. The Royal Photographic Society have provided some inspirational ideas of science experiments you can set up and photograph in the classroom or at home.
The closing date for entries is 4th December 2020, you can find out more info or submit your entries here.
Remember that science is everywhere around us, it just takes your eye to see it.
