Annual Photo Contest

Now Accepting Submissions

The 2019 Annual Photo Contest is now open! This is an open call to all photographs representing the electric or natural gas industry. Celebrate your talent, share your unique perspective, and help us capture the wonder of our industry by entering today.

This contest is open to all WEI energy and service company members. Send us pics that are beautiful, interesting, enlightening or humorous — or that photo you’re simply proud of, for whatever reason. We only ask that they be industry-related. Share your visual story and get a chance to win placement on the cover of WE magazine. We’ll also publish a collection of the best entries in the Winter Issue.

Please send submissions to Gabrielle Zapun by July 31, 2019.

Images must have a resolution of at least 300 dpi in order to be accepted into the contest. Please include the photographer’s name, company, date or year the photograph was taken, and an optional caption. Entry into the contest constitutes your acceptance of the official contest rules. Please see rules for additional details. Good luck!
