On August 7, 2010, more than 200 amateur photographers from around the world had the rare opportunity to experience state-of-the-art accelerators and detectors in all of their complexity and beauty as part of the first Particle Physics Photowalk.
Five of the world's leading particle physics laboratories in Asia, Europe and North America offered special behind-the-scenes access to their scientific facilities on tours tailored to the creative eye. The participating photographers submitted thousands of photos for local and global competitions. The winning photos can now be viewed on Flickr.

The Particle Physics Photowalk is organized by the InterAction collaboration, whose members represent particle physics laboratories in Asia, North America and Europe.
