In order to bring astronomical content to pupils all across Serbia, which is not part
of regular school curricula, and to increase their interest in astronomy, we organized
an astrophotography competition called ”Take a Photo of the night sky”. The com-
petition was intended for primary and high school pupils, whom we invited to submit
one photo taken with a mobile device in teams of no more than 5 pupils, under the
supervision of a teacher. As part of the competition, professional training was orga-
nized for registered teams on how to make successful astrophotography using a mobile
device (phone or tablet). A total of 184 teams from all over Serbia participated in
the astrophotography competition, including more than 1,400 pupils and 200 teach-
ers from all over the country. The astrophotography competition was organized by
NAEC Team Serbia (National Astronomy Education Committee at the International
Astronomical Union). Four of the most important astronomical institutions in Serbia
were behind the competition: the Society of Astronomers of Serbia, the University
of Belgrade - Faculty of Mathematics, the Astronomical Observatory in Belgrade,
the Mathematical Institute of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, and the
research and development center United Cloud and EPSON Serbia as partners from
the private sector.
