Science Photographer of the Year

Science Photographer of the Year shows how photography enables scientific research, captures its results and highlights the many ways that science impacts our daily lives. New for 2020 is a category exploring how climate change is affecting the landscape and built environment. 

Images come from researchers, professional and amateur photographers and students at university and at school. The images are chosen without regards to the experience of the photographer or the equipment used, a good idea and keen eye is all that is needed.
