CERN Photowalk 2015

CERN invites photographers to go behind the scenes

On 25 September 2015, 20 photographers will be given a unique opportunity to explore the facilities of the world’s largest particle physics laboratory. CERN is teaming up with seven other laboratories for an international photography competition: the Global Physics Photowalk.

During the competition at CERN, entitled the "CERN Photowalk 2015: Behind the scenes", the laboratory will open the doors to three of its facilities for the first time: the new Linac 4 accelerator, which will shortly start supplying beams to the Large Hadron Collider; CERN’s main workshop, where state-of-the-art technologies can be seen in use; and ISOLDE, which supplies beams to around fifty experiments each year. The photographers will also have the chance to take shots of everyday life on the CERN campus.

The competition is open to all photographers.

Number of participants limited to 20.

Deadline for applications: CLOSED
