Photo of the Week
Every week, SkyNews publishes the best image from among those sent in by readers from all across Canada. From wide-field Milky Way shots to deep-sky images of galaxies far, far away, the contest highlights astrophotography that is technically precise and eye-poppingly beautiful. Whether you’re an expert or a beginner at night sky photography, we’re looking for your pictures.
Once a year, we gather all the images entered in this contest and choose the best for our Photos of the Year. Winners are published in the September/October edition of the magazine and on the website. Sponsors for the 2022-23 contest are Sky-Watcher, Celestron, iOptron and The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. Click here for more details on the prizes.
