Global Photowalk Science Adventure Returns for 2018

Apr 07 2018 Read 538 Times

Science laboratories from around the world will open their doors to provide the chance for amateur and professional photographers to capture scenes of today’s most exciting and ground-breaking science. The Global Physics Photowalk competition includes opportunities for both amateur and professional photographers at locations such as Cern - the home of the Large Hadron ollider – as well as underground laboratories in the US, Australia and the UK; and labs and facilities in Italy, the UK, the US, Canada, and – for the first time – China.

The photowalk will involve local and national competitions, with the winning national photos submitted to a global judging panel. Organised by the Interactions Collaboration and supported by the Royal Photographic Society (RPS), the global shortlist will be announced in August, followed by a public vote.

Mark Richardson, Chair of the RPS Science Committee, said: “This is a fantastic celebration of the stunning beauty of science on an international scale. The world’s best scientific research is based on international collaboration, a worldwide melting pot of expertise and technologies, each working for the benefit of our global society and economy. The photowalk is a rare opportunity to capture work behind the scenes at the world’s best international laboratories and capture it, frame by frame.”

Dr Andrew Taylor, Executive Director of the National Laboratories for the UK’s Science and Technology Facilities Council, said: “We are incredibly excited to be hosting a photowalk at our national laboratories. It’s a unique opportunity for photographers to see some of the incredible science that happens here in the UK and to share it with the public in a new and exciting way.”
