Here is a good chance for anyone interested in photography to do something innovative. This from the press office of the Novartis/Daily Telegraph Visions of Science Photographic Awards:
Time is running out to enter the Novartis and The Daily Telegraph Visions of Science Photographic Awards 2005! If you still haven’t sent us your images, you have just 5 weeks left until the closing date - Friday 6 May - so it is now time to get your entries together for your chance to win a prize of up to £1000 in the 6th year of this unique & prestigious competition.
Open to amateurs and professionals of all ages who are resident in the UK and Eire, the competition is attracting more entries every year. As with previous years, we have the categories of Action, Close-up, People, Concepts and Art with special awards of Medicine & Life and Young Photographers (plus great prizes for their schools and colleges as well).
In addition to this, there are some new Awards:
Art meets Science Award - A new award for visual artists whose work has been inspired by science or medicine. Entries will be judged as a photographic image, although the original artwork may be a painting, sculpture, installation or photograph
Einstein Year Award - a special award celebrating the centenary of Einstein’s greatest discoveries. The award will be given for the most creative image showing the wonder and ingenuity of contemporary physics
With prize money of £1000 for 1st prize and £400 for 2nd prize in each category and £500 for each special award, or a digital camera and printer dock worth £550 for the Young Photographers plus their schools, there are plenty of reasons to enter. A selection of winning photographs will also tour the UK & Eire in an exhibition visiting prestigious venues such as the Science Museum in London.
