Blossom on the trees, longer days and a strange craving for egg-shaped chocolates tells us that spring is in the air.

To celebrate, we’re launching a photography competition for the CERN community. Send us your best photos of “spring at CERN”. Our favourite photo will win a CAGI Chocopass, kindly offered by the CAGI cultural kiosk at CERN. This Chocopass lets you spend a day exploring Geneva and tasting from a range of chocolate shops.

How to enter:

  • You must have a CERN email address to take part in this competition.
  • Send your photo to bulletin-editors@cern.ch by Sunday 24 March at 11:59 p.m. CET.
  • You can send a maximum of three photos per person.
  • By sending your photo, you agree to it being added to a CC-BY photo collection in the CERN Document Server, where you will be credited.
  • The photos may be used by CERN online for this competition and in the future.
  • The winner will be announced in the next CERN Bulletin.

We are grateful to the International Geneva Welcome Centre (CAGI) for offering a Chocopass for the winning prize. The CAGI cultural kiosk is located in CERN’s main building and is open from Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. It offers numerous discounts for local activities and events both in Switzerland and in France.
