From 1 to 22 April, an online “Earth and Sky” photo contest will be open for submission by photography enthusiasts from around the world. The contest theme, “Dark Skies Importance,” has two categories: “Beauty of the Night Sky” and “Against the Lights.” Photos submitted to the contest should aim to address either category: either to impress people on how important and amazing the starry sky is or to impress people on how bad the problem of light pollution has become. Both categories illustrate how light pollution affects our lives.
More information on the competition at The World at Night website.

The winners will be announced on April 30. 

Follow the Dark Skies Awareness blog and check out these Dark Sky Resources.
