We used to believe light was a wave, then we discovered it had the properties of a particle that we call a photon. Now we know it, like all elementary quantum objects, is both a wave and a particle!
Talented writers and filmmakers have been submitting their quantum-inspired creations to Quantum Shorts for the past seven years.

In Quantum Shorts 2017, the story “Acceptable Loss” by Przemysław Zańko claimed top prize. In 2018, the winner was short film Slide by Thomas Tay. Then visit our Inspiration section to fill up on quantum ideas.
