From waves and bubbles to ice and steam, we want you to capture the art in science with water. Entry to the photo competition is free and open to people of all ages and photography skill levels. 


Entries close on 9th of June.


The 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.
