International Dark-Sky Association hosts its 4th annual global photo contest, sponsored by Visit Utah. Entries must be received by June 30, 2023.

International Dark-Sky Association(DarkSky), a leading global organization combating light pollution, is now accepting entries for its fourth annual “Capture the Dark” photography contest, celebrating the beauty and benefits of natural darkness. The competition is free and open to night-sky enthusiasts worldwide.

“The contest is designed to capture the importance of a dark sky to all living things,” said Ruskin Hartley, executive director for DarkSky. “As with past contests, the images help educate people about the serious impacts of light pollution and inspire all of us to protect the night sky.”

This year’s “Capture the Dark” photo contest sponsor is the Utah Office of Tourism. The organization is committed to elevating life in Utah through responsible tourism stewardship. “We look forward to welcoming photographers of all ages and skill levels worldwide to capture the beauty of awe-inspiring night skies,” said Vicki Varela, managing director of the Utah Office of Tourism. “Preserving dark skies helps communities establish long-lasting tourism economies and keeps our places Forever Mighty®.”

Photographers may submit one photo per category by June 30, 2023. Entries will be evaluated by a panel of accomplished astrophotographers from across the globe, including Imma Barrea (U.S.); Ben Coley (South Africa); Jeff Dai (China); Dr. Lin Qing (China); Ian Lauer (U.S.); and Parisa Bajelan (Iran).
