The AAPT High School Physics Photo Contest is an international challenge for high school students in grades 9-12 that takes place every year between March and May. The contest offers teachers and students an opportunity to explore various physical concepts by creating visual illustrations and written analysis.

Students participate in an international arena with more than 1,000 of their peers for recognition and prizes. A committee of physics teachers selects 100 photos from the total entries received. The top 100 photos (50 Contrived, 50 Natural) are then displayed and judged at the next AAPT Summer Meeting to determine the final winners.
