Earlier this year, the world’s particle physics laboratories opened their doors to amateur and professional photographers, who are providing a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—and people—that run the 17 participating labs across the globe.
And you can vote for the winner in the 2018 Global Physics Photowalk competition.
Each of the 54 finalist photos has advanced from a local competition at one of the 17 labs, and now your votes will help pick the worldwide winners.
Pick your five top choices at the link above through 11:59 p.m. PT on Sunday, September 16.
Winners will be announced at 2018 ASTC Annual Conference in Hartford, Connecticut.
The competition is organized by the Interactions Collaboration, which supports the international science of particle physics and sets visible footprints for peaceful collaboration across all borders.
Participating particle physics labs this year were: CoEPP Stawell Underground Lab in Australia; TRIUMF and SNOLAB in Canada; the Institute of High Energy Physics in China; INFN‘s Frascati, Southern, Legnaro, and Gran Sasso National Laboratories in Italy; CERN in Switzerland and France; STFC‘s Daresbury, Rutherford Appleton, and Boulby Underground Laboratories, Chilbolton Observatory, and the UK Astronomy Technology Centre in the United Kingdom; and Brookhaven National Laboratory, Fermilab, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, and SURF in the United States.
