High transverse momentum (pT) production of pions and photons in proton-proton and proton-antiproton interactions are studied within the QCD framework and compared with the presently available experimental data. Scaling violation effects are included, and shown to be important at large pT. Predictions are made for the γ/π0 ratio at collider energies. The possibility of extricating the gluon distribution function from the invariant cross section data for the process {Mathematical expression}+p→γ+X is suggested.
