Celebrate International Day of Light 2020 from your Home!

Although many activities that have been planned for the International Day of Light 2020 on May 16 will no longer be able to take place as scheduled, there is no reason we can’t celebrate virtually. In these challenging times, let’s come together to share the role of light in our lives. The organisers behind the International Day of Light are excited to announce two new initiatives for IDL2020:

Share How you Celebrate Light on Social Media

Help build some momentum and excitement for the annual International Day of Light on May 16th. The organisers invite you to post on social media using #IDL2020 and #SeeTheLight with images that capture how light influences our lives in the broadest sense. Some ideas include sharing a picture of:

  • How the science or technology of light improves our lives
  • A natural phenomenon related to light or colour
  • How light is used in art or culture
  • Yourself working with or just enjoying light in some way
  • Your photonics laboratory experiment
  • Your favourite book about light
  • Your favourite astronomical object or astrophotography (if you are an astronomer)
  • How you use optics in education
Call for Videos for the International Day of Light
The organisers also encourage you to submit a video that showcases how you study, celebrate and/or enjoy light. The International Day of Light Secretariat will select videos to be shared on the official IDL social media pages on 16 May. Videos must be no longer than 1 minute and be submitted through this form by 14 May. Some ideas for video submissions include
Explain and/or demonstrate your photonics or light-related research (including students)

  • How do you use and enjoy light while you stay/work at home?
  • Show your favorite light-based technology
  • Create an astrophotography time-lapse or presentation, or explain how you conduct astrophotography in your region
  • Find a laser in your home
  • How do you use and celebrate light in your culture?
The complete rules and guidelines are provided on the video submission form.
