Shortlisted for Royal Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2011

On a whim and just to say I threw my name in the hat I submitted 5 photos from the past year into the Royal Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition put on by the Royal Observatory at Greenwich. I have only been doing astrophotography for a little less than 3 years now so to my shock and delight I received an email a few weeks ago saying that 3 of my images had been short-listed! I am beyond excited just to have even been shortlisted and on top of that got an invite to the awards ceremony and exhibition opening on September 8th at the Royal Observatory.

I am going to have a great time at the exhibition and meet fellow astrophotographers and I am honored to have even been shortlisted. Now I get to anxiously wait until September 8th!

Here are the 2 of the 3 images I had shortlisted:


  1. These are so fantastic!! And what an honor this year and being invited to the ceremony will be so amazing! I can tell you love your photography of the Night Skies!!

  2. Fantastic work, Anna! You are an inspiration to so many of us getting into this wonderful and rewarding hobby. Enjoy your time at the exhibition :)

  3. Superb! I can only hope to reach that level one day!
