The Royal Photographic Society opens Science photographer of the Year competition

The competition is open to all ages and levels of expertise with entry closing on 19 July

The Royal Photographic Society’s Science Photographer of the Year competition is now open for entry and is open to all ages and levels of expertise with two categories: Science Photographer of the Year and Young Science Photographer of the Year (under 18 years old).


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.

RPS science exhibition coordinator, Gary Evans says, “The competition is open to everyone. We are looking for images from all ages that tell a story about science – how it is used, how it looks or how it impacts people’s lives. Fun or serious, the selectors will be looking for the story behind the picture as well as the visual impact it makes.”

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