Did you take your best-ever construction photo this year? We invite you to share it with everyone by entering it in ENR’s annual “The Year in Construction” photo contest.
The contest, now in its tenth year, has grown in popularity. Last year, we received 1,752 entries, which is considerably more than 2008. Every year, the editors say the photos are improving in quality—and that’s not hype. Cameras are improving in ease of use and in their ability to capture a photographer’s intent. Moreover, with the proliferation of picture-taking devices—from cell phones and the vast range of digital cameras to video cameras that can capture high-resolution stills—shooters are becoming more adept at visual storytelling. On top of that, they take their cameras everywhere!
We love the contest because viewing all the wonderful photos is a pleasure. Plus, we get to hear directly from our readers about their projects, and we are able to recognize the people who capture amazing moments. We also hope that sharing captivating views of the world of construction is a boost for the industry’s public image.
So please, go to the <photo contest entry page and submit your digital images... through our online process. We are asking individuals and firms to enter their best construction shots taken anywhere in the world between Nov. 7, 2009, and Nov. 12, 2010.
We want dynamic, well-composed and aesthetically pleasing photos; however, please do not submit photos showing unsafe conditions or behavior. Our judging panel will include a construction safety expert, and we will do our best to spot and exclude images featuring unsafe activities. Our readers have made it abundantly clear that they stand tall for safety and lead by example. They expect no less from their peers and from ENR.
