4th DarkSky ‘Capture The Dark’ photo contest celebrates natural darkness | Digital Camera World

2022 first-place winner in the Connecting to the Dark category was ‘Rock climbers under a rising blood moon’ by Chris Olivas


DarkSky has announced its fourth annual ‘Capture the Dark’ astrophotography contest to highlight the importance of a dark sky to all living things – and to highlight light pollution. 

The anti-light pollution organization – fresh from a re-brand from International Dark-Sky Association – has an International Dark Sky Places program that encourages the protection of dark sites. Many of them are favourites with astrophotographers looking for compositions of the night sky.
