The three winning photos will compete in the Global Physics Photowalk against photos taken at other big scientific labs around the world. In addition to the three winners, seven other SLAC Photowalk pictures were named as runners-up and seven more as honorable mentions. SLAC also invited a group of employees to participate in the photowalk event and though not eligible for the global competition, three photos at the bottom of the page were chosen as staff winners.
