The Royal Photographic Society’s Women in Photography Group has announced the finalists of the inaugural Woman Science Photographer of the Year competition at an awards ceremony hosted by the Royal Photographic Society in Bristol ahead of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science on 11 February, as initiated by the UN General Assembly.
The winning photograph is Watershed Triptych by Margaret LeJeune (USA). Jury member Yas Crawford describes the panel’s recognition of LeJeune’s artistic interpretation of one of today’s key environmental issues as ‘an endorsement of just how far we can go when combining science and art in a thoughtful and informing way’.
The Beauty of Soap Bubbles by Kelly Zhang (USA) was announced winner of The Young Woman Science Photographer of the Year. She reiterates the importance of the award as ‘it not only represents an achievement but also serves as an encouragement for other women and girls to pursue their passions and careers in science.’
