The Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) has launched its second annual Concrete in Life competition. Open to professionals and amateurs alike, the competition seeks to highlight the surprising everyday beauty of concrete, as well as its practical use and sustainability advantages.
Concrete in Life is divided into four categories. Urban design and use showcases cityscapes and buildings. Infrastructure encompasses structures that enable our lives, like roads, bridges, stations and dams. The Concrete in daily life category adds a human element, highlighting how it’s used daily, in smaller-scale applications. The final category, Concrete on video, is open to video clips up to one minute long, featuring concrete in any facet.
One professional and one amateur winner will be chosen for each category, as selected by panel of industry experts. Of these eight winners, one will be crowned overall competition champion with the best Concrete in Life photo of the year and awarded a $10,000 (roughly £7660). The remaining seven will receive a $2500 prize (roughly £1920).
To enter, participants must post their entry picture 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 must also tag the GCCA, using @the.gcca on Instagram or @theGCCA on Twitter.
The competition is open until 18 November 2020.
