Sign up to take a photo at Fermilab on a date in 2017!

It’s 2017, the year Fermilab turns 50. We’re celebrating by inviting everyone at the lab with a camera (that’s probably you!) to take a photo and upload it to our Daily Image From Fermilab — or DIFF — album.

DIFF is an effort to photograph some aspect of Fermilab every single day of 2017. By the end of the year, all 365 days will be represented through photos taken by you. Take a look at the pictures employees have taken so far this year

How does it work? It’s easy. All you need is a Services account and a camera — anything that takes a picture.

Penelope Constanta took this picture of the Bubble Chamber on the first day of the year.

1. Go to diff.fnal.gov (visible only to those on the Fermilab site or VPNed in). Sign up in advance to take a picture on a date — or dates — of your choosing.
2. When that 2017 date rolls around, take a picture.
3. Within two days of taking the picture, upload it to diff.fnal.gov.

Sign up now or learn more on the DIFF website.

Your photo – and all the others taken up to that point — will be posted on a dedicated webpage on the DIFF site, showcasing daily snapshots of Fermilab over the course of 2017.
