GCCA 2nd Annual Global Photography Competition

Event Details

Global Cement and Concrete Association launches second annual “Concrete in Life” global photography competition - a competition aimed at professional and amateur photographers to showcase the beauty of concrete across the world

The Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) today launched its second annual “Concrete in Life” competition. Kicked-off at its annual global conference, the GCCA competition is open to both professional and amateur photographers. It is intended to showcase the practical use, strength, durability and beauty of concrete as well as its sustainability advantages.

Entrants are challenged to submit photos that highlight the vital role that the world’s most used human-made product plays in our daily life.

Participants are encouraged to submit images in four categories:

  • Images of the city landscapes and buildings around us, both well-known and hidden away – from the Sydney Opera House to the tower block you might have grown up in.
  • Photographs of our infrastructure, in our cities and rural areas, above and below ground: highways, bridges, airports, stations and dams, let’s celebrate the concrete buildings supporting and enabling our life.
  • Showcasing the human side of concrete – how it’s used and interacted with daily. Also includes small scale applications of concrete.
  • Up to a one-minute video clip of concrete in life across any application whether a small-scale use or infrastructure.

Dinah McLeod, GCCA Chief Executive said: “Concrete, and its vital role in our world, is the foundation of so many of our human stories. The ‘Concrete in Life’ competition is a wonderful opportunity to showcase concrete’s strong, durable, renewable, resilient and beautiful aspects that make up our built environment. We hope that this competition will inspire participants to see the unique ways that it can be used all over the world.”

To enter the competition, participants should post a picture that they’ve taken on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #ConcreteinLife, along with the hashtag for the category they’d like to enter:

#UrbanConcrete, #ConcreteInfrastructure, #ConcreteInDailyLife or #ConcreteinLifeVideo. They should also tag the GCCA – @the.gcca on Instagram or @theGCCA on Twitter.
