Capturing Irish Science: A national science photography competition returns to Ireland for 2018

The national science photography competition has returned to Ireland for 2018, with a particular focus on celebrating women in STEM. Wiki Science will take place from 1st to 30th November, organised by Wikimedia Community Ireland. This competition aims to raise awareness of science, scientists and their research in Ireland by creating a store of quality images taken by members of the public that are free to use in education and outreach.

Photographers of all skill levels are encouraged to explore the six categories and then upload their photos to Wikimedia Commons. The six categories are people in science, microscopy images, non-photographic media, image sets, a general category, and a special prize for an image depicting Women in STEM. The entries will be judged by a panel of Irish judges, with the six winners being announced at the SCI:COM conference on 12 December 2018.

For full details of the competition see www.wikimedia.ie and for updates see @wikimediaIE and Wikimedia Community Ireland’s Facebook page. You can see the winning images from the 2017 competition here, for some inspiration!

The competition is supported by the SCI:COM conference and the Science Gallery Dublin. Prizes have been kindly donated by the Princeton Press, Routledge, and anonymous STEM donors.
