RICS Infrastructure Photography Competition 2016

RICS Infrastructure Photography Competition 2016

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has launched its nationwide photography competition for the second year in the row, to find the most visually engaging and imaginative images of major UK infrastructure projects.

Open to the general public, entrants are invited to submit an original photograph of any man-made physical structure which benefits society in some way. This can include anything from roads to bridges and railways, water supply systems to telecoms, and renewable sources of energy generation such as wind farms.

The competition is now open for entries until Friday 19 February 2016, with the shortlisted entries will be announced in March. The top ten entries, including the overall winner, will be revealed in early April before being celebrated in an exhibition later that month.

The overall winner and runner-up will receive £2,000 and £1,000 respectively worth of specialist photography equipment.

A host of influential infrastructure and photography experts will be judging this year’s entries, with a panel including Steve Mayes (Architectural and Landscape Photographer), Amanda Clack FRICS (Head of Infrastructure at Ernst & Young) and Ann Bentley (Global Chair of Rider Levett Bucknall).

To enter, visit http://www.rics.org/uk/footer/rics-infrastructure-photographer-of-the-year/ and submit your photograph.

The deadline for entries is midnight on Friday 19 February 2016. The shortlist will be announced in March 2016, with the Top 10 and overall winner revealed in early April 2016 – they will also be invited to attend a gallery exhibition featuring their images later that month.
