Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2016
Every year we invite astrophotographers from around the world to send us their best images as part of the Royal Observatory’s Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition. In 2016 we had an amazing response, receiving over 4500 entries from 80 countries. These pictures capture all manner of celestial spectacles: moons, stars, planets, galaxies, nebulae and some of the great astronomical events of the last year.
We award prizes in eight different themed categories, as well as our Young Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition for entrants under the age of 16. We also give two special prizes: the Robotic Scope prize and the Sir Patrick Moore Prize for Best Newcomer.
Visit the exhibition to see the 31 prize-winners and explore an interactive exhibit featuring all 140 shortlisted images.
