North East Bridge Selfie competition launches

ICE North East has launched a photography competition that challenges entrants to get the best selfie with one of the North East's bridges.

The winner of the competition will receive £150.

Penny Marshall, Regional Director of ICE North East, said: “Whatever your favourite, whether new or old, get down and get snappy this weekend!

“The competition has been planned to encourage interest in how civil engineers design, build, maintain and improve the modern world around us and to stimulate the desire to discover more about engineering in the region.

“We’ve had more than a fair share of bad weather in June, so we’re hoping the sun will be shining over the weekend of June 22-23, and people will enjoy finding out more about the many magnificent bridges of the North East and have lots of fun taking selfies and sending them to us.”
