International Images for Science 2016 Competition Open
Celebrate the Art of Photographing Science!
Entries are now being accepted for the International Images for Science competition 2016. The competition is organised by The Royal Photographic Society (RPS) and supported by Siemens as part of the Curiosity Project, a three-year programme which aims to engage young people with science and engineering.
“We want as many people as possible to enter this competition – school or college students, scientists, photojournalists, artists – everyone!” says RPS coordinator, Gary Evans, “Entrants can have fancy equipment or use a smartphone, it doesn’t matter. The important point is to capture your view of science in a way that tells a story to the average person.”
Entrants are required to take a visually appealing picture that tells a science story. The Top 100 entries will be chosen by an expert panel to be exhibited at the British Science Festival in Swansea in September 2016 and then across the UK.
From the 100 exhibition images, five prizes will be awarded:
* Gold Award (Age 26 and Over): £1000 and an RPS Gold Medal
* Silver Award (Age 26 and Over): £750 and an RPS Silver Medal
* Bronze Award (Age 26 and Over): £500 and an RPS Bronze Medal
* Gold Award (Age 18-25): £750 and an RPS Gold Medal
* Gold Award (Age 17 and under): £500 towards photography equipment and an RPS Gold Medal
The competition is free to enter, simply register online at rps-science.org and upload your images to the web site.
Deadline: Closing date is midnight on 1st May 2016.
Last year’s entries included the mould on a strawberry, a bubble popping, vascular networks of a heart, close up of a moth, hydrogen gas burning in a conical flask and a bee’s bottom.
