*New Imaging Challenge Prize Competitions*
« on: 07:34:16, 08 August, 2015 »


UKAI are delighted to announce that we have teamed up with ALTAIR-ASTRO to bring you 4 brand new exclusive imaging competitions to be held throughout the next 9-12 months,  in line with a new product launch of Astronomy Cameras brought to you by Altair-Astro

Each competition challenge will be run consecutively over a period of time to suit, and will be themed to a particular genre of astroimaging, making them accessible to beginners and seasoned imagers alike, and giving you not one, but FOUR chances of winning one of these superb little astro cameras throughout the coming months




The 4 categories are.....



How you interpret the themes is up to you, as we are opening this up to not only photography, but also other creative mediums such as artwork and digital creation, so you wont necessarily be restricted by your sky or weather conditions. The judges will be looking for unusual and dynamic approaches to the subject, creativity, and the natural environment in context with the genre, as well as technical excellence and overall aesthetic of the final image

We hope that this will encourage all of you to expand your skills and experiment with some new techniques, and we look forward to seeing your images



The Prizes...
Altair-Astro have kindly provided UKAI with four prizes of the new Altair GP-Cam Cameras, one of which will be awarded to the outright winner of each challenge, and there will be runner up prizes of the much coveted UKAI Coffee Mug!

The first of our Imaging Challenges has been a big success, we had over 20 images entered into the first challenege, so it is going to be difficult to choose our favourites as the winners, but if you didn't get the chance to enter, we will be starting a new challenge very soon, this time with the theme of Startrails

In case you missed our first challenge, you can view the entries here

We will announce the lucky winners of the Milkyway Challenege as soon as the judging panel has made a firm decision, but in the meantime, start thinking about how you could enter the next phase of this competition.  Have a good read through the information above, as all the clues to creating a winning image are there, and you may well be the next winner!

Look out for the banner announcing the next phase of the competition, and be sure to enter and support your favourite forum  ;)
