The New Scientist Photography Awards 2021 will have fun pictures that illustrate how science and know-how impression our lives and the world round us, with a £1000 prize for the general winner. Anyone over the age of 18 can enter the competitors and entry is free.
The competitors has three classes: The Natural World, Modern Life and Our Changing Environment. For every class, the judges will shortlist 4 pictures and from these decide a winner and a runner-up. The class winners will then go to a public vote to find out the general winner of the New Scientist Photography Awards 2021.
The judging panel consists of naturalist and tv presenter Chris Packham, award-winning photographer Sue Flood and three members of the New Scientist crew: Helen Benians, Timothy Revell and Penny Sarchet.
Flood says: “I’m thrilled to be judging this prestigious competition and can’t wait to see people’s work. What’s going to catch my eye? It could simply be an extraordinary capture of a very ordinary event. Or, on the other hand, it could be an incredible event captured at just the right fraction of a second. Either way, it will be a shot that has something that stops me in my tracks and stands out from the crowd. That’s the wonderful thing – you never know what you’re going to find when you’re judging, but you’ll know the shot when you see it!”
