2019 Photo Contest

Share Your Night Sky

Light pollution is an increasing issue across the West, but we think there are still places where the night skies are incredible. This year's photo contest will put that theory to the test. Send us your best pics of the Western night sky.

The contest will result in two overall winners: one audience-chosen and one HCN editor choice. Winning images will be published online (may also be printed in the magazine) and both winners will receive a MindShift Rotation180 Professional 38L Deluxe Edition backpack. Thank you to MindShift Gear for sponsoring this contest!
