Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2022

Post by brian livesey »

It’s that time of year when the Royal Observatory in Greenwich invites entrants to submit photo-images of the sky in its astro-photographic competition. There are a number of categories, ranging from natural atmospheric phenomena, such as auroras and haloes, to lunar, planetary, galactic and extragalactic subjects.
There’s also a section for newcomers in the Best Newcomer award for astrophotography. This is open to individuals who only began astro-imaging in the past year. Finally, there’s the Young Astronomy Photographer of the Year prize for under-16s.
The top astro-imager will receive the £10,000 prize, and the best entries will be on display at the National Maritime Museum from September. Enteries open on January 10 and close on March 4. See the Observatory’s website for details. We’ve seen some superb astro-images in this yearly competition. We can only wonder how the judges are able to arrive at a consensus for choosing the best one.
