Manchester Science Festival is collaborating with The Royal Photographic Society on their prestigious Science Photographer of the Year competition as part of the 2021 programme.

We received over 1,000 entries for this year's competition from photographers of all ages and abilities, who captured images that show science in action, depict its impact on our everyday lives and illustrate how photography helps to record scientific events.

The shortlisted photographs will be used to create an exhibition for Manchester Science Festival, bringing together science, climate and art in a stunning showcase of images. After its first showing at the Science and Industry Museum, it will tour the UK and internationally.

To find out more about this exhibition, and to be the first to hear about the rest of the Manchester Science Festival 2021 programme, sign up to our newsletter.
