The UN General Assembly declared February 11th as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science to inspire progress toward gender equality in science and technology. To celebrate and support this initiative, the RPS Women in Photography group is launching our first annual Woman Science Photographer of the Year to encourage the use of photography to explore the science around us.

The Woman Science Photographer of the Year is a new international photo competition that celebrates the remarkable stories behind scientific exploration and application, depicting its impact on our everyday lives and illustrating how photography helps record and explain global issues and scientific events.

Our culture cannot be imagined without science. And in our visual world, it’s not enough to just speak about science; we must also show it. For this, we need photographers to capture it and to share it.
The competition is open to all female and female-identifying photographers, regardless of age or photographic experience. Open to student or researcher, amateur or professional photographer, scientist or person interested in the world.

Winning images will be displayed as a digital exhibition at the RPS House in Bristol UK from 11 February to end of March, 2023.
