The AGS is holding a new photography competition for 2023!

We’re on the lookout for your most creative images which are reflective of the geotechnical and geoenvironmental industry.

The winning photos may be used to update the AGS stands, which are used at events and conferences, and across our marketing materials.

If you’re a budding photographer or have a great engineering image which you’d like to enter, then we’d like to see it!

Entry into the competition is free and the winner of the competition will win a food hamper basket from luxury retailer, Fortnum and Mason, worth over £75. Three runners up will each win a bottle of Champagne.

There are no restrictions on the photography equipment used, so feel free to use a phone, computer, tablet or a traditional hand-held camera to capture your image as long as the below criteria are met.

All entries will be reviewed by select members of the AGS, who will decide on a shortlist and a potential winner. Full details will be announced in the November issue.
