Space Between Us...

by Łukasz Sujka

Winner

"While judging the competition in times of lockdown, social distancing and isolation, this picture took on a particular poignancy. It was a healthy reminder, too, that scale and space is also a question of perspective".

Melanie Vandenbrouck, Curator of Art (post-1800) at Royal Museums Greenwich  

"The enormous distances in the Universe are beautifully captured in this phenomenal photograph. Even though the Moon and Jupiter appear side by side, they are approximately over 700 million kilometres apart".

- Emily Drabek-Maunder, astrophysicist, astronomer and science communicator at Royal Observatory Greenwich

In the Outer Reaches

by Martin Lewis

Runner-up

"The judges were audibly gasping at the sight of this pastel marble and its grain-like companions in the form of Uranus and its moons. Sometimes the most unassuming of images make for the most astonishing".

- Melanie Vandenbrouck, Curator of Art (post-1800) at Royal Museums Greenwich

The Ghost of Alnilam and a Near Earth Asteroid

by Robert Stephens

Highly Commended 

"It is always a challenge to capture an asteroid. They move fast, they are faint and they are somewhat less spectacular. However, this composition captures its target in an impressive, delicate way in a beautiful setting and the black and white scene just adds a twist to it".

- László Francsics, Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2019 Overall Winner
