Enter Your Photos in the STEaM Photo Competition

April 01, 2015

The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History will host a photo art exhibit that invites members of the community to share their photographic talent and eye for everything that is Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEaM). The “Atomic STEaM Photography Show” exhibition will open on November 7, 2015, and will display photography ranging from the literal engineering feats of the Great Wall of China and the Great Pyramid of Giza, to the abstract interpretation of science as seen through a plant experiencing photosynthesis.

Any individual, from a professional photographer to a student with a camera phone, may submit a photograph to this competition/exhibition with the hope to not only win a cash prize, but to also have their work on display in a nationally accredited, Smithsonian affiliated museum. All winning entries will debut at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History from November 7, 2015, through January 3, 2016.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for community members, and people from all over, to represent what STEaM means to them and display their talent for photography in a special exhibition at a national Museum,” said Jim Walther, Director of the Museum. “We look forward to introducing STEM in an artistic capacity, hence the “a” in our ‘STEaM Photo Show’ title.”

Though all photographs submitted to the Museum must relate in some way to the overall theme of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics, they are open to interpretation by the photographer. Each entry fee is $15, and there is no limit to the amount of entries an individual can submit. Entry deadline is Friday, August 28, 2015, and notification for acceptance will be announced on Friday, October 9, 2015.

Entries are now being accepted here. For more information regarding the competition, including terms and conditions and deadlines, please visit nuclearmuseum.org, or contact info@nuclearmuseum.org with questions.

The exhibit will remain on display to the public through January 3, 2016, and there is no additional cost to view the exhibit beyond the regular Museum admission.
