#thisiscivilengineering Photo Challenge

#thisiscivilengineering photo challenge is designed to raise the profile of civil engineering and highlight the benefits of infrastructure around the world.

Show us how a civil engineering project can benefit your local community and if we love your photo, you could win a Mpow 3-in-1 lens for your smartphone.

Each month we announce a theme and the previous month's winner.

This month's theme is:

Buildings – capturing the creativity and the beauty of structures

This months theme is civil engineers

How to enter:

  1. Follow ICE on Instagram
  2. Snap a photo from anywhere in the world that fits with the theme of the month.
  3. Tag the photo #thisiscivilengineering and tag us (@ice_engineers) as well.

The winner of the competition will be announced at the end of each month.

What we're looking for:

  • Good composition, lighting and sharpness of image
  • Feeling, does the image convey emotion?
  • Relevance – show civil engineering, perhaps a recent or topical project
  • Originality
