RPS Science Photographer of the Year: Images Selected

Aug 21 2019 Read 269 Times

A shortlist of images entered into The Royal Photographic Society’s Science Photographer of the Year competition have been chosen and will be exhibited at the Science Museum in London from 7 Oct 2019 until 5 January 2020.

The free exhibition[1] will comprise the highlights of the competition in which entrants were required to take a visualy appealing picture that tells a science story either with a camera or smart phone.

The exhibition will be held in The Studio on the second floor of the Science Museum’s iconic building on Exhibition Road, London. Seventy images will be on display in a purpose-designed gallery space, intended to allow viewers time to absorb the images and their background stories.

The expert panel of selectors were TV Presenter Dallas Campbell, the Science Museum’s Roger Highfield, ITV This Morning’s Dr Zoe Laughlin and Medical Imaging Expert Catherine Draycott FRPS. Dallas Campbell said, “There was a very high standard of images spanning a huge range of subjects from the microscopic to the grand scales of the human world and beyond. Technically stunning, and brimming with arresting ideas.”

RPS Science Exhibition Coordinator, Gary Evans says, “Science has always been integral to photography and photography remains essential to science as a tool for research and for communicating it to the public. The RPS is delighted to be exhibiting at the Science Museum, where we are sure the images will engage, entertain and educate in equal measure.”

The competition was open to all ages and levels of expertise and there were two categories; Science Photographer of the Year and Young Science Photographer of the Year (under 18 years old). The winners will be announced on 7 October and will be included in the exhibition.
