Science Photographer of the Year brings together eye-catching images that show science being done, show how photography helps science or how science impacts upon our daily lives.

The competition is open to everyone, without regard to age or photographic experience. Student or researcher, amateur photographer or professional, scientists or someone with curiosity about the world, anyone is eligible to enter the competition. There are just two categories - for photographers under the age of 18 and for those aged 18 and over.

A shortlist of images is chosen by a panel of experts, who also select the winners to be the Science Photographer of the Year and the Young Science Photographer of the Year.
