Global Physics Photowalk 2020
Several of the world’s leading science laboratories will open their doors to amateur and professional photographers as they join together to host the Global Photowalk competition.
The photowalk will give participants a rare opportunity to visit and photograph physics facilities in Asia, Europe and North America, and to get a behind-the-scenes look at where the world’s most exciting science is being carried out today.
The photowalk includes both local and national competitions. Winning photos from local competitions hosted by individual institutes will be submitted to a global judging panel.
The Global Photowalk is organised by the InterActions Collaboration, who will announce a global shortlist in July, followed by a public vote online. A selection of the winning photos will be published in CERN Courier and Symmetry.
Photographers are invited to register at one of these participating laboratories:
- Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) – USA
- Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) - Germany
- European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) – Switzerland/France
- Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) - USA
- High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK) - Japan
- Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) - Russia
- Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) - USA
- National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) - Italy
- Gran Sasso National Laboratories
- Frascati National Laboratories
- Legnaro National Laboratories
- Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) - USA
- SNOLAB - Canada
- TRIUMF - Canada
“The Physics Photowalk is a visual celebration—on a global scale—of the incredible scientific facilities and people answering some of the biggest questions about our universe,” said Peter Genzer, co-chair of the InterActions Collaboration. “It’s a rare opportunity for photographers to go ‘behind the scenes’ at physics labs around the world to capture the inherent beauty in these machines that push the limits of technology and foster international cooperation.”
Places for each Photowalk are limited and are strictly by registration only.
