PAINT THE NIGHT SKY
Win a trip to Iceland!

Capture the majesty of the night sky and blow us away.

The winner will go on a fully paid trip to Iceland for a 3-day photo workshop with Iceland Photo Tours.

The Brief

In 2019, Skylum and Iceland Photo Tours will bring photographers together for a series of Skylum Iceland Adventures. So every month this year from June to November, we will run a photo competition and select one winner to join Iceland Photo Tours for an unforgettable Iceland photo adventure.

The Paint the Night Sky photo contest is brought to you by Skylum and Iceland Photo Tours.

Meet the contest judges: Iurie Belegurschi and Daniel Kordan.


Don a head lamp, pack some spare batteries and head out into the night, intrepid photographers, and capture those nightly displays. 

The magic of the Northern Lights. The grandness of the Milky Way. The quirkiness of star trails. They're an eternal part of the night sky that most seldom get to witness. Yet to many photographers, they are their Everest, the dream that many want to climb but very few get to conquer.

For our second Iceland Photo Tours contest, we want you to showcase your jaw-dropping night sky shots. We want to see your best Milky Way arches, your most vivid auroras, your star trails in a perfect circle. Impress us too with the coolest foregrounds, whether it be a outlandish-looking desert monolith or a night hiker admiring all that grandness.

Again, remember to try the award-winning Luminar for your editing needs. 

The talented winner gets to join us on a photo expedition in Iceland.

GOOD LUCK!
