SUPL Photowalk Competition 2015

******* Registrations have now closed *******

The Stawell Underground Physics Laboratory (SUPL) at the Stawell Gold Mine in Victoria will be the only lab of its kind in Australia, and will house the first ever direct-detection dark matter experiment in the southern hemisphere.

We're inviting amateur and professional photographers the chance to go behind the scenes at SUPL to areas inaccessible to the public. The event will be held on Friday 25 September from 1pm, and will allow up to seven photographers the unique opportunity to take images of an underground physics laboratory in its early stages of development.

The SUPL Photowalk is part of the Global Physics Photowalk 2015 organised by the Interactions Collaboration where hundreds of amateur and professional photographers will have the rare opportunity to go behind-the-scenes at eight of the world's leading particle physics laboratories including: CERN (Geneva), DESY (Germany), Fermilab and SLAC (USA), KEK (Japan) and INFN (Italy). Selected images from the SUPL Photowalk will be chosen to enter the Global Physics Photowalk competition which includes a jury competition and a people's choice competition conducted via online vote. Global winners will have the opportunity to be featured in Symmetry magazine, the CERN Courier, and as part of a travelling exhibit across laboratories in Asia, Europe and North America.
