A showcase for the very best digital photography of the built environment in the region, the competition is open to all schools, colleges, photo clubs, members of the public, as well as industry colleagues.

The institution has selected 20 significant civil engineering projects across the region, and entrants are invited to capture a photograph of one of the structures. There is no limit to the number of photographs you can enter.

The photographs will be featured in a number of public spaces at a prestigious anniversary exhibition next year, as the institution celebrates its bicentenary. There are also three cash prizes.
