2018 SNOLAB Photowalk




Dear Photographers,

This June, SNOLAB is teaming up with major science laboratories around the world to take part in an international photography competition; the Global Physics Photowalk. For this rare event, 20 photographers will be given an exclusive opportunity to explore one of the deepest underground science laboratories and capture images of the world class science underway at SNOLAB.

The competition is open to amateur and professional photographers and the top photos from SNOLAB will be selected by a local jury. Each participating laboratory in the Global Physics Photowalk will choose three photos that will be entered for the international competition, which will run until the end of summer, 2018. The winning international photos will be selected by a jury and a public vote and will have the opportunity to be featured in the CERN Courier and in Symmetry magazine
