Submissions for On-Site‘s annual Canadian Construction Photo Contest have now closed. The 2019 winners will be featured in our upcoming February issue, as well as online.

We’ll be back later this year looking for submissions for 2020, so hold onto your favourite shots! Until then, see the 2019 contest details and entry requirements below.

Don’t miss out on the chance to showcase your photography prowess — whether it’s an aerial shot of your sprawling work site that shines a spotlight on a big-budget project, or a resplendent iPhone photo of your team in the midst of the perfect concrete pour.

The winning shots will be featured in On-Site both in print and online — meaning our nationwide readership will get a glimpse into this year’s top projects through the lens of your team.

See below for guidelines and tips to enter:

  • Keep photos below 20MB as email attachments. Use file hosting services such as Dropbox or WeTransfer for larger images
  • Make sure to include the name of the photographer and your company, so we can give credit where it’s due
  • Give us the details! The more the better. We want to know the job site location, as well as when and how the photo was taken. Any additional information about the project, such as the size of the crew, the scope and budget of the job and at what stage of the project the shot was taken will help us put the photo into context
  • This contest is designed to highlight this year in Canadian construction so please limit your submissions to photos taken in 2019 and on Canadian soil
  • Only enter photos that you own, or have the express permission of the photographer to use
  • The submitter must be willing to grant On-Site non-exclusive rights to reproduce the photos in print and online
  • We ask individuals to limit their submissions to a maximum of three photos

The On-Site team will select the winning pictures based on the following criteria: composition, originality and intent, clarity and quality, lighting and exposure and colour.

Most importantly, we want to see the construction industry from your point of view. Whether it’s a sunrise from the cab of your excavator, a bird’s-eye view of a billion-dollar project, or a once-in-a-lifetime shot from a unique or remote job site, amateurs and professionals alike are encouraged to participate (and win)!


Please direct any questions about the submission and selection process to On-Site’s associate editor, Megan Hoegler.
