Carnegie Science Center is calling amateur photographers of all ages! Show off your camera skills, and your love of science, by submitting up to two of your best photographs that capture a scientific theme. Entering is easy, and you can win cash prizes!
Eligible photographs may display a weather scene, a microscopic image, an image showing force or energy, or an image depicting astronomy, mechanics, biology, physics, chemistry, cosmology, or any other scientific field. The challenge is to capture the essence and aesthetic beauty of a scientific phenomenon in a photograph that both communicates a scientific concept and is artistically significant.
There are two ways to win! A panel of judges will determine the winners of cash prizes, one winner in each age category: ages 18 and up, $500; ages 13-17, $250; ages 12 and under, $100. All submissions will be featured on Trib Total Media's Contest webpage, where fans will be able to view the photos and vote for their favorites. A People's Choice prize will be given to a contestant in each age category with the most online votes. The award will be a family membership to Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh. Voting will open on Friday, April 1, 2011 and will close on Friday, April 15.
Hurry, the deadline for submission is Thursday, March 31, 2011! Don't forget to vote for your favorites!
