Find out more about the largest astrophotography competition in the world
Astronomy Photographer of the Year is the largest international competition of its kind.
Every year we showcase the best space photography from a global community of astrophotographers.
The competition is open to all. An expert panel of judges will then select the best images from each category and together decide on the winning images.
These winning and shortlisted photos then go on display at the National Maritime Museum in our dedicated photography gallery space.
