  • Connecting to the Dark – Experiencing a natural night provides perspective, inspiration, and leads us to reflect on our humanity and place in the universe. Share a shot that illustrates our connection to the night.
  • International Dark Sky Place – Over 130 protected lands and municipalities have been certified by IDA as an International Dark Sky Place creating havens for astrophotographers around the world. Share a shot taken in one of these locations.
  • The Impact of Light Pollution – Light pollution can have significant impacts on the environment, human health, and our access to the universe. Share a shot that demonstrates the impact of light pollution.
  • The Bright Side of Lighting – Light pollution can give lighting a bad rap. But lighting that follows IDA’s Principles for Responsible Outdoor Light can be beautiful, healthy, and functional. Share a shot of lighting that respects the dark.

Know the quiet place within your heart and touch the rainbow of possibility; be
alive to the gentle breeze of communication, and please stop being such a jerk.
