2019 ELEVATOR WORLD PHOTO CONTEST
Send us your best shots and you could win cash and be published in ELEVATOR WORLD magazine!
A panel of judges will first choose up to 20 finalists from each category. Those finalists will then be presented online during the month of June where our readers will vote and ultimately decide the best of the best. The winners and runner-ups from each category will be featured in the August issue of ELEVATOR WORLD and highlighted online. In addition, ALL qualified submissions will be posted in a special photo contest gallery on www.elevatorworld.com/media.
Submit your vertical, horizontal or inclined transportation system of an innovative design, special application or approach that has solved a major problem or overcome a unique challenge. All entries will be judged and categorized as received by an impartial panel of experienced industry professionals and experts. Projects will be judged on the following: innovation, originality and creativity, challenges overcome, installation methods and techniques, the use of advanced technology, and overall quality of presentation.
Winning entries will be published in the January issue of ELEVATOR WORLD, and the winners in each category will be acknowledged with an award of recognition. We are now accepting entries for the 2020 contest.
