The world’s premier astrophotography competition celebrates 10 years of capturing the cosmos with a special exhibition at the National Maritime Museum. A new gallery space has opened for IIAPY 2018, which showcases the 31 winning, runner-up and highly commended images from this year’s competition, as well as 69 of the top entries from the past decade.
The Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition has grown in size and scope over the 10 years since it began, and now includes categories for: astrophotographers under 16; those who prefer to capture their astro images online using robotic scopes located around the world; and the Sir Patrick Moore Prize for Best Newcomer. Along with astrophotos from these categories, expect stunning images of aurorae, skyscapes, stars, nebulae, galaxies, our Sun and Moon, planets, comets and asteroids.
The exhibition opened to the public following the announcement of the 2018 winners at a special ceremony held on 23 October.
Entry to the exhibition is £9 for adults and £5.85 for children if booked in advance, £10 and £6.50 respectively on the day. Advance bookings can be made via the IIAPY website. The exhibition is open daily from 10am until 5pm.
