Short description

The Concrete In Life 2023 Global Photography Competition, organised by the Global Cement and Concrete Association, now is open for entries in its 5th dition. 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. The competition provides a unique opportunity for both amateur and professional photographers to showcase their talent and creativity by highlighting concrete’s diverse applications.
