THE SEARCH IS ON FOR 2017’S MOST OUT OF THIS WORLD PHOTOGRAPHY

A picture is worth 1000 words…or maybe £10,000. If taking pictures of the night sky is your thing, this competition is worth checking out…

The Royal Observatory Greenwich has launched its annual Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition – it’s ninth annual global search for the most beautiful and spectacular astronomical images, whether its of the starry sky, up close moon shots, or artistic space pictures.

Held in collaboration with Insight Investment and BBC Sky at Night Magazine, the competition offers up a £10,000 prize, which is enough to make anyone a little starry-eyed.

As if the cash prize wasn’t incentive enough, this year there’s even more to be over the moon about – Rebecca Roth from NASA is a member of the judging panel. As a photographer herself, Roth is excited to see the spectacular images from the space world that she knows and loves.

The competition began 27 February and is open until 7 April. So if you know any night owls with a passion for photos, encourage them to send in their top snapshots…
