DPG Photo Competition: "Shining Physics"

The darkest time of the year arrives. In order to evoke a glimpse of light, the Regional Group Potsdam of the jDPG organizes the photo competition "Shining Physics". (December 2021 - January 2022)

Physics is everywhere around us in the brightest colors, and yet it often remains unnoticed. By organizing this photo competition, we want to embrace and spread the fascination of physics, together with as many present or future enthusiasts as possible.

Send us your picture and win a DPG fan package. By the way, it does not have to be a recent photo. We are also happy about photos that you took 30 years ago, as long as it fits the topic. We will publish the most beautiful pictures on our website and social media.


Evaluation criteria

Your image will be reviewed with the following in mind:

  • Creative interpretation of the topic
  • Connection to physics
  • Design and picture composition

In addition, a small explaining text is relevant to the evaluation. It should be sound and trenchant.

Who can take part?

All adult DPG members and non-members can participate. It is only important that you have obtained the consent of any persons depicted or of the author (if they are not themselves) before submitting the photo.

The event is organized by the Regional Group Potsdam, Germany, of the jDPG, but participation on a wider scale is explicitly encouraged.

What can you win?

Send us your photo and win a "DPG fan package". This also includes some much sought-after must-haves for DPG members. Let us surprise you!

A special part of the DPG fan package is in any case an exclusive DPG anniversary cup.

How can you participate?

From the beginning of December 2021 until the end of January 2022 you can submit the photos - landscape format is appreciated - simply by using an online form.
