Global Physics Photowalk 2018 Open for Registration


The Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), as a member of the Interactions Collaboration is sending the invitations in China to the photographers, both amateurs and professionals, to a three-hour, behind-the-scenes Photowalk of the laboratory on August 7, 2018.

Photographers will be able to visit, explore and take pictures of scientific machines and locations in IHEP research areas that are not usually accessible by the public. It is a rare opportunity to see behind the scenes of the China’s biggest high energy physics institution.

The Global Physics Photowalk, hosted this summer at 16 labs around the world, including CERN – the home of the Large Hadron Collider – as well as underground laboratories in the US, Australia and the UK; and labs and facilities in Italy, the UK, the US, Canada. IHEP is the first time to join this global event..

The global physics 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.

Applications for the IHEP Photowalk are open now! Please send the following information to, which include your name, age, institute, phone number and a number of selected images. The deadline for registration is 00:00, July 26.
