Sunsets over the North Sea, industrial landscapes and “majestic” wind turbines are among the compositions submitted for a new photography competition that aims to frame life in the energy sector.
Organized by training provider AIS Survivex, headquartered in Aberdeen, to celebrate World Photography Week, the competition aims to showcase the “awesome backgrounds” of energy workplaces.
The company, which trains up to 150,000 workers a year for the global energy sector, says it hopes to see footage of the “incredible sights” its delegates experience day in and day out.
The competition is open to anyone working in the energy sector – from oil rig workers to wind technicians and power plant engineers – with entrants offering the chance to win free industry training, a potential value of thousands of pounds.
Many industry-approved training courses are mandatory for energy workers due to strict adherence to high safety standards.
The owner of the winning image will be able to choose from over 450 company training courses at sites in Scotland and the North East of England.
Courses cover everything from skills like rope access, sea survival, emergency response and trades like blade repair, non-destructive testing (NDT) or spray blaster.
The winning move will be decided by a jury, which will assess the entries based on their quality and impact. It will then be displayed at AIS training centers and shared on social media and its website.
The company says it has already received “hundreds of entries”, but encouraged all budding snappers to submit their photos before the September 9 closing date.
Linzi Ryan, Marketing Manager at AIS Survivex, said: “Many people new to the energy field often ask what it’s like to work in the industry. We couldn’t think of a better way to showcase this by celebrating some of the stunning scenery our delegates experience day in and day out.
“Our photography competition is open to anyone working in the energy field and the hundreds of entries we have received so far are incredible. Absolutely breathtaking.
“With an unbeatable training price that can be worth thousands of dollars, it is definitely worth participating. We urge people to take photos and send us their images before the deadline.
