The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History will host its fourth annual photo art exhibit that invites members of the community, both near and far, 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 4, 2017, 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. Though all photographs must relate in some way to the overall theme of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics, they are open to interpretation by the photographer.
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 photographers will fall within one of two categories; "Youth" Category for anyone 17 years of age or younger and "Open" Category for all individuals, whether professional or amateur, who are 18 years of age or older. All selected entries will debut at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History from November 4, 2017, through December 31, 2017. Deadline for entries is Friday, September 1, 2017.
Gregg Albracht, Professional Photographer
