March 25 - April 30

Entries are now being accepted for the 8th International Earth and Sky Photo Contest on Dark Skies Importance. There will be up to 10 winners over two categories with the top prize usually a telescope.

TWAN (The World at Night) is coordinating it, in conjunction with GAM (Global Astronomy Month) and the National Optical Astronomy Observatory. It's free to enter and open to anyone of any age, anywhere in the world. The winners will be announced in May.

The photos have to be created in the "TWAN style" - showing both the Earth and the sky - by combining elements of the night sky against a backdrop of a beautiful, historic, or notable location or landmark. The contest theme, "Dark Skies Importance," has two categories: "Beauty of the Night Sky" and "Against the Lights." One is to impress people on how important and amazing the starry sky is and the other is to raise awareness on how bad the problem of light pollution has become.

Here is last year's overall winner. It's Alex Conu's photo of the northern lights in Norway. He took it from the top of Mount Reinebringen, in Lofoten. It was selected as the winner in the Against the Lights category as well as overall contest winner. It's superb.

The Earth and Sky Photo contest for 2017 closed at the end of April. The results will be announced next month. There are a lot of entries for this competition and judging it is quite an undertaking.

Here is the 2016 winner of the category "Against the Lights" and overall winner of the competition. "Northern Lights above Lofoten" was presented by Alex Conu, originally from Romania, but now living in Norway. We see the lights of a coastal village and filling the sky a magnificent aurora borealis.

Stephanie Ye from China was the first-place winner in 2016 the “Beauty of the Night Sky” category with her "The Tail of the Aurora". She took the picture in March 2015 from northern Norway.

Have a look at "Viking Lights", the photo-composite winner in the 2016 "Beauty of the Night Sky" category. U.S. photographer Adam Woodworth took this in Newfoundland, Canada in June 2015. Sublime.

Here's second place in the 2016 "Beauty of the Night Sky" category: "The Photographer" by Austrian Nicholas Roemmelt. It was taken in March 2015 from Stockiness, Iceland.

"Milky Way Like a Dolphin". The photo-composite 2016 winner in the “Against the Lights” category is by Alvin Wu from China. The rising arc of the Milky Way is captured on Mauna Kea observatory, Hawai‘i in April 2015 with the Gemini North telescope in the foreground.

Fantastic for those of us - i.e., most of the world! - who can't see the Milky Way at all.

I've been enjoying looking through these wonderful photographs, but have to admit that I've yet to find any sign of the winners for this year. I guess the judging has been even more difficult than I'd suggested in an earlier post.

To be continued when the results come out .......

I don't know when the winners were finally announced - I forgot about them until a few minutes ago.

First Prize in the category "Beauty of the Night Sky" went to Camilo Jaramillo (Colombia) for "100 Steps Forward". He photographed it in the Huacachina Desert in Peru.
Quote:
Jaramillo says, “This photo talks for its own, a perfect moment with Venus, a crescent Moon hiding on the horizon and the always cosmic and amazing Milky Way. Person on photo is a friend of mine who I met in my trip around this beautiful country, Peru."

Contest judge Alan Dyer comments: "Here we see a great composition and lighting. Great juxtaposition of human, Earth and sky. And fine processing. A 'Wow!' shot for sure, my initial reaction was a key factor in making a judgment."
