Announcing the Image of the Year 2016 Photo Competition

Image of the Year

The team at PhotographingSpace.com is proud and excited to announce something awesome.

How does $2,000 (USD) worth of the Celestron gear sound?

Not too shabby!

We’ve officially partnered with our friends at Celestron, coupled with our current Image of the Week, and we are happy to announce the official opening of the PhotographingSpace.com Image of the Year 2016 competition!

We want to celebrate and reward hard-working astrophotographers.

Give us your sleep-deprived adventure-seekers, your night owls, coffee-drinkers, and obsessive cosmic wonderers. You all work very hard to create your images, it’s more difficult than most people think — so let’s celebrate that!


Thanks to Celestron, fabulous prizes can be won for the overall 2016 Image of the Year recipient and the Top 12. And by fabulous, we mean fabulous.

Get all the details, entry requirements, and prize offerings here!
