Are you a budding photographer? Then you should consider entering our exciting new photography competition.

The New Scientist Photography Awards 2021 will celebrate images that illustrate how science and technology impact our lives and the world around us, with a £1000 prize for the overall winner. Anyone over the age of 18 can enter the competition and entry is free.

The competition has three categories: The Natural World, Modern Life and Our Changing Environment. For each category, the judges will shortlist four images and from those pick a winner and a runner-up. The category winners will then go to a public vote to determine the overall winner of the New Scientist Photography Awards 2021.

The judging panel consists of naturalist and television presenter Chris Packham, award-winning photographer Sue Flood and three members of the New Scientist team: 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!”

Entries will be accepted until 31 July 2021. The shortlist, runners-up and category winners will be announced by 2 September 2021. The category winners will then be put to a public vote in September 2021, with the overall winner announced in October 2021. See our terms and conditions for full details.
