Another awesome set of entries to the_ PopSci_ photo contest. Thanks to everyone who entered and congrats to this week’s winner for the theme “Science Up Close”: Freshdopetea (via our Flickr pool).

For all of you photogs, another contest is in the works. After the jump, get the low down. And as always, happy shooting!

About the winner:

Photographers: upload your photos, and the editors’ pick will be highlighted on the site, along with a short profile of the photographer. The next contest’s theme is “Technology You Love” (which leaves you plenty of room for interpretation) and our winner will be chosen on Friday, September 12.

A few guidelines:

  • All photos must be taken by the submitting photographer. Do not submit other people’s work.
  • Please include, in the info section on the submission page, a short explanation of what the photograph is and how it exemplifies Technology You Love.
  • There is no cap on submissions per photographer. Please enter as many of your pieces as you’d like.

The bridge on the left has stood since 1950, unlike the one it replaced, now beneath the waves as a national historic landmark. The bridge on the right was completed and opened last year, 2007, after five years of construction.
