Science Photographer of the Year 2020

Now open for entries

We pleased to announce that entries are now open for the 2020 Science Photographer of the Year competition.  

Science Photographer of the Year celebrates the many realms of science. The competition showcases images from around the world that tell the remarkable stories behind scientific exploration and application, and demonstrates the myriad ways that science impacts our lives every day. 

The RPS is looking for images that capture science in action, whether it be at home, school or using specialist imaging techniques.  

New for 2020 is the category ‘Climate Change’ for images that address global environmental and ecological issues.  

“Whether you are studying science or climate change at school, or working at the cutting edge of science or environmental research, this competition provides an opportunity to draw attention to your work and see it exhibited at one of the UK’s leading science museums.” Dr Michael Pritchard, Director, Education and Public Affairs. 

Shortlisted photographs will be exhibited as part of Manchester Science Festival in February 2021.  

Submissions are free and open to all, irrespective of scientific or photographic experience, or the equipment used. Submissions are open until 4 December 2020.
