For many years this contest has provided teachers and students an opportunity to learn about the physics behind natural and contrived situations by creating visual and written illustrations of various physical concepts. Students compete in an international arena with more than 1,000 of their peers for recognition and prizes. There is a limit of 15 entries per school each year. Disclaimer: The accuracy of the photo essays submitted by the High School students in their explanation of the physics demonstrated by the photo is the responsibility of the students and their teachers. AAPT does not subject the essays to peer review. The copyright to all photos submitted for this contest belongs to AAPT. Use of the photos from the website for educational purposes is permitted. However, all other print or digital use requires permission.

Step One: Teachers must register online first and will be provided with a payment confirmation code that the students from their class (teachers cannot share this confirmation code with other teachers at their school) will use to complete the registration process.

Step Two: Students will use the payment confirmation code provided by their teacher to go online and register and upload their photo. Step Three: Students must mail their photo, registration form and signed entry agreement to the address listed above.

Judging of the photos is done in two stages. A committee of physics teachers will select the top 100 photos from the total entries received. (scoring approximately 40% essay and 60% photograph) The top 100 photos (50 Contrived, 50 Natural, plus any chosen with Multiple Images) will be displayed and judged at the next AAPT Summer Meeting to determine the final winners.
