Astronomy Photographer of the Year

The Royal Observatory has launched the Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2009  competition– a brand new, free competition and exhibition for everyone who loves the night sky.

You don’t even need to have a telescope as one of the catergories is Earth and Space which simply requires that your picture contain an astronomical subject – for example the stars, the Moon, or near-Earth phenomena such as aurora.

If you do have a telescope then there are catergories for photos of our solar system and objects in deep space. There are great prizes to be won and the winning entries will be displayed in a special exhibition at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich.
