The contest entries should be images, taken since January 1, 2016. They must be created in the “TWAN style” – showing both the Earth and the sky – by combining elements of the night sky (e.g., stars, planets, the Moon or celestial events) in the backdrop of a beautiful, historic, or notable location or landmark. This style of photography is called “landscape astrophotography”.
The contest theme, “Dark Skies Importance” has two categories: “Beauty of the Night Sky” and “Against the Lights”. Photographers can submit images to one or both categories.
30th April 2017
