On August 7, a photography exhibition “Film Science!” will open at the Muzeon Park of Arts. The exposition will consist of 42 works of finalists and winners of the photo contest "Film Science!". All citizens and guests of the Russian capital will be the first to see the unique shots of the contest participants. In the fall the photo exhibition will be held in seven other cities in Russia.
Every year, "Science" TV channel holds a competition of scientific videos and photos "Film Science!" among video bloggers, television journalists, scientists, students interested in promoting scientific knowledge. This year more than 400 authors took part in the photography contest, having sent 2182 works. All the shots are uploaded under a free license and already illustrate many Wikipedia articles devoted to science.
“This exhibition has collected the best photos that help to see the other side of science, demonstrating its beauty and greatness. We hope that visitors of the exhibition will not remain indifferent, discover something new and, perhaps, want to try their hand at science,” said Maria Semenova, editor-in-chief of the "Science" TV channel.
In the works presented at the exhibition, visitors can see both the scientists themselves at work and the scientific and natural phenomena that are inaccessible to the unaided eye: coral fluorescence caused by ultraviolet light, bizarre forms of crystal solutions, bee paw with pollen, patterns on the wings of insects and other images. These amazing shots demonstrate the beauty of the scientific world and prove that everyone can film science.
The exhibition is organized by the “Science” TV channel, Wikimedia RU, All-Russian festival NAUKA 0+. General partner of the event is PJSC “Togliattiazot”, one of the leading chemical enterprises, Russia’s largest producer of ammonia.
“We annually support a wonderful popular science project "Film Science!". This year we decided to present the creative achievements of the contest participants not only in Moscow but also in the Russian regions, at the central venues of the festival.
