2018 Art of Physics Competition

The challenge is to capture photographically a beautiful or unusual physics phenomenon and explain it in less than 200 words in terms that everyone can understand.  Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) is currently accepting entries in three categories of competition:
* Students up to high school graduation.
* High School Class projects – Teachers may submit only the top entry.
* Open  (i.e., industrial and government establishments and commercially-funded research, universities, community colleges, charity-funded research programmes, teachers, laypersons, others).
Entries must be original artwork created by the participant. We are currently working on an online submission system.  Therefore, it will be possible to submit an entry from March 14, 2018 to April 14, 2018.  The entry fee is $5 for category 1, $10 for category 2 & 3.

The winning entries and honourable mentions from all categories will be added to the CAP’s Art of Physics exhibition.

A certificate acknowledging their achievement will be sent to winning participants.

Some entries may be selected to be featured as a future cover for Physics in Canada. The teacher of the winning team (Category 2) will receive an engraved plaque for the school as well as a one-year complimentary high school teacher membership in the Canadian Association of Physicists.   Prizes will be awarded in May 2018.
