In celebration of the International Day of Light, the May photo competition has the theme of light. This could be anything from the role of light in science (including images taken using telescopes and microscopes) to light painting and astrophotography; or you could take a photo of nature: a sunrise or reflections on a lake… get creative!
We would love to see your photos – just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, tag us on social media or post your photos in the #photos channel of the IAPS Discord. You don’t have to be a current physics student to enter.
As well as the monthly themes, jIAPS always enjoys seeing Physics-related photos, including photos of events organised by IAPS and other Physics societies. You can see some of the best photos of Physics events here.
