Participants of the WFPhC congress 2010 in Croatia.

The World Federation of Physics Competitions - or WFPhC for short - was founded in 1999 on the initiative of Dr. Waldemar Gorskowski, former President of the International Physics Olympiad (IPhO), by requesting Dr. Hans Jordens to create a platform for physics competitions with the aim to promote excellence in and research on physics education through the use of secondary school physics competitions. Its members are individuals, organizations and institutions from all continents involved in science education and physics competitions.

The WFPhC organizes regular activities around the globe such as a biannual congress. It also publishes a regular newsletter that succeeds the journal "Physics Competitions" in introducing innovative ideas in the field as well as informing about activities of its members.

The WFPhC invites interested individuals and organizations to take part in the activities of the federation and is open to welcome new members.
