Deadline approaching for construction photo contest
By Adam FreillConstruction
Get your 2021 job site photos in by January 14 to take part in On-Site's annual showcase of Canadian construction.
The clock is ticking!
The January 14 deadline to get your job site photos in for the On-Site Canadian Construction Photo Contest is less than one month away.
Whether it’s watching the sun rise behind a crane on a commercial site, a nighttime shot of bridgework or paving, an aerial view of a foundation being poured, or a site approaching completion, we want to share your best shots of your best work.
Professional photography is always welcome, but we don’t mind you capturing that perfect moment with your iPhone either. Just make sure that you shoot in high resolution and that it is safe to snap away. Winning pictures will be announced in February, and will be featured in On-Site, both in print and online.
In the spirit of the contest, we’ve kept the rules fairly straightforward:
- Our focus is on Canada, so please only include images taken in 2021 of Canadian projects and job sites.
- Give us the details. Who shot the photo? What company do they work for? What company do you work for? Whose project is in the photo? Who is in the photo? Tell us about the size and scope of the project. What’s being done in the photo? The more information you provide, the better we can describe the winning shot(s) in our pages.
- On-Site and its parent company will require non-exclusive rights to reproduce the photos in print and online, so please only submit images that you own or have express permission to use from the photographer or rights-holder.
- Please submit high-resolution images. If sending via email attachment, keep photo file sizes to below 20MB. File hosting services, such as Dropbox and WeTransfer, can be used for larger images.
- Please limit submissions to a maximum of three photos for an individual, and eight for a company.
- Have fun, and show your work!
The On-Site team will select the winning pictures based on the following criteria: composition, originality and intent, quality, lighting and colour. We you to look at our finalists from 2020, 2019 and 2018 for inspiration, and an idea of what we are looking for.
