The paper presents an analysis of photometric observations of the eclipsing binary QW Gem. The orbital and physical parameters of the system are derived using the modeling code by G. Djurašević. Photometric observations are obtained from the SuperWASP public archive and the spectroscopic elements are adopted from a recently published radial velocity study. The results suggest that QW Gem is a binary in overcontact configuration, consisting of two stars of similar surface brightness but in different evolutionary stages.
