Entries are now being accepted for the International Images for Science competition 2016.

The competition is organised by The Royal Photographic Society (RPS) and supported by Siemens as part of the Curiosity Project, a three-year programme which aims to engage young people with science and engineering.

Entrants are required to take a visually appealing picture that tells a science story. The Top 100 entries will be chosen by an expert panel to be exhibited at the British Science Festival in Swansea in September 2016 and then across the UK.

“We want as many people as possible to enter this competition - school or college students, scientists, photojournalists, artists - everyone!” says RPS coordinator, Gary Evans, “Entrants can have fancy equipment or use a smartphone, it doesn’t matter. The important point is to capture your view of science in a way that tells a story to the average person.”

Enter online

The competition is free to enter, simply register online at rps-science.org and upload your images to the web site.

Closing date: midnight on 1st May 2016.
