This year, physics students from around the world were challenged to submit a photo illustrating a physics concept. The students were required to take the photo themselves and to write a summary of the physics occurring in the photo. The winning photos in the showcase below were judged by AAPT members to be the best of 100 finalists. The winners were chosen in July at the 2009 AAPT Summer Meeting in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Winning teacher of each of the prize winning students receives a $100 Vernier gift certificate
