The “Background challenge” photo contest allows the community to come together in these stressful times, to share a little bit of the intimacy of our homes and hopefully have a good laugh. The principle is simple: take a selfie in your home office in front of the background that your colleagues see during your video calls, and upload it on the website.
For those who are still at CERN, a photo of you on your work place will do the job. Since this is CERN, creativity and eccentricity are of course very much appreciated.
Submissions for your pictures will close next Monday 13 April, so make sure not to miss out on the fun! A one-week long voting period will follow, where you’ll be asked to choose your favourite background. The winners will be celebrated on CERN’s social media channels (if they wish to), and rewarded with a CERN T-shirt.
