Concrete in Life 2023
Welcome to the GCCA’s 5th annual Concrete in Life photography competition
As one of the most widely used human-made products on the planet, concrete is all around us: in our houses and offices; our roads and pavements; in the bridges that connect us; the wind farms that provide us with energy; and the sea barriers that protect us. As the sustainable building material of choice, it provides safe, durable and resilient structures as well as providing the basis for renewable energy infrastructure.
Concrete in Life is our annual photography competition, open to all photographers (or anyone with a camera phone) around the world. It tasks you to take photos of concrete in your life for a chance to win up to $10,000.
Entering the competition is simple. Just upload a photo of concrete using the hashtag #ConcreteInLife2023 and the hashtag of the category you are entering (full entry details below).
Entries will be judged by our judging panel – our shortlist will be revealed later this year and winners will be announced in early 2024.
New for this year is a People’s Choice award, where the public will vote for their favourite photo from our shortlist. Stay tuned for more details.
