Two Wellington scientists have taken out photography prizes in Niwa's excellence awards, announced last night in Auckland.

The awards were established to recognise people who have made an exceptional contribution to the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (Niwa).

The Our Places Award went to Wellington climate scientist Katja Reidel for her photo Mt Olympus.

Dr Reidel also got the People's Choice Award for Mt Taranaki while the Our Work Award was given to Wellington oceanographer Craig Stevens for Penguins.

The Our People Award went to Hamilton biologist Tracey Edwards for her photograph Diver while aquatic biodiversity diver Crispin Middleton received the Special Award for his Leather Jelly image.
