The UN General Assembly declared February 11th as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science to inspire progress toward gender equality in science and technology.  To celebrate and support this initiative, the RPS Women in Photography group is launching our first annual Woman Science Photographer of the Year competition. The competition is open to any female and female-identifying photographers. Our culture cannot be imagined without science. And in our visual world, it’s not enough to just speak about science; we must also show it. For this, we need photographers to capture it and to share it. The competition is open to any female and female-identifying photographers, regardless of age or photographic experience. Student or researcher, amateur or professional photographer, scientist or person interested in the world; anyone can take part in the competition. The winning photographer and shortlisted images will be announced at a ceremony at the RPS in Bristol on 11 February, 2023 to coincide with International Day of Women and Girls in Science. These images will be exhibited on a rolling feed at the RPS through the end of March on a big screen inside the building.
