What is a superconductor?
After the great success of Luminescence 2015 the Otago Optics Chapter is back with another exciting photo competition: Capture Science - Earth, Space, and Weather. Winning entries will be exhibited at the Otago Museum as part of the New Zealand International Science Festival 2016!

From rock formations and icebergs to lighting storms and star clusters, capture the natural beauty of the earth, space and weather. Entry to the photo competition is free and open to people of all ages and
photography skill levels.
Entries close on 26th of June.
Attention Teachers and School Students: We will be travelling to visit the school with the most entries, where we demonstrate a range of fun optics experiments! So remember to encourage other pupils at your
school to enter!
The Capture Science Photography Competition encourages entrants to explore the science of the incredible world around us. Each entry should be accompanied by a 30-150 word caption that includes an explanation of some science present in the photo. The photo and caption will be judged on three criteria: 1. originality, 2. aesthetic appeal, and 3. the level of clarity of the science portrayed and described in the caption.
