Thank you to everyone who took part in our last Physics World photo challenge. We asked readers to submit photos to our Flickr group relating to the theme of “portrait of our planet”. We had some great submissions, a selection of which are showcased in this article.
The theme for our new photo challenge is “doing physics”. We want you to submit your pictures of the process of science. It could be you or your colleagues working on an experiment in the laboratory, or perhaps out in the field collecting data, or maybe looking at the heavens through a telescope. Or perhaps you are more theoretically minded and you want to send us an image of your paper-littered office, or the chalkboard detailing the calculation that has been keeping you awake for the past two weeks. Be as creative as you like.
Please add your photos by Tuesday 8 May and then after this date we will choose a selection of our favourite images to be showcased on physicsworld.com. And feel free to write a caption to share the story behind the image. We look forward to your submissions.
