Power of the profession – photo competition

Every day, projects change people’s lives. From transport to construction, telecoms to technology, health to heritage, projects benefit every part of the economy, society and the environment. Behind these success stories are the project professionals who take ideas and make them a reality.

Now you have the opportunity to show the power of the profession with APM’s very first photo competition.

This is your chance to showcase a project that you are involved with and proud to be a part of. The competition is open to all aspects of projects, programmes or portfolios from conception to delivery.

How to enter

The competition is open to all project professionals with an interest in photography. To be in with a chance of winning some great prizes, take a picture of the project you are involved with and upload via the photo competition entry form.  

The winner of the competition will win a place at our APM Project Management Conference in London on 2 May 2019, where their image will be displayed. Along with this great prize the winner will also receive a £500 online voucher that can be used on a specific camera website. 2nd and 3rd place will receive a £100 online voucher which can also be used on a specific camera website.

If you'd like to take part, then grab your camera and take a picture! Please make sure when taking an image, you do not endanger yourself or others, take unnecessary risks or infringe any laws.

Your image will be judged by a panel of judges with photography and project backgrounds. They will pick the top 6 images which will then be uploaded to our social media platforms for voting.  

Make sure you include a description about the project during the upload process. This is a great way to tell a story or other interesting facts about your image. The judges will be able to read this while rating to give them insight into how you came about the shot.

What size image should I upload?

How many images can I enter?

You can enter as many images as you would like.

Can images be taken on a phone?
