2019 Winners

The selection of the shortlist for 2019 was hosted by the Science Museum in London. The panel took some hours to arrive at agreement, picking 70 images for the exhibition and these two images as the winners.

Science Photographer of the Year

The overall winner was Morgan Trimble of South Africa for her image "Launching a Mini Boat". The selection panel especially liked the overall composition, the clashing domains of red/blue and yellow/white on the right side of the image and the sense of peril for this tiny research boat about to be released into the ocean.

Young Science Photographer of the Year

The winner in the Under-18 category was Jason Chen of the USA for his image "Growl". This shows a plastinated dog's head used for training anatomy to veterinary students. The selection panel noted the angle from which the image was taken and the fierce appearance of the animal, preserved forever with an expression many vets will become familiar with. Although not part of the selection criteria, it was noted that this image was captured on a smartphone.
