Taking honorable mention in last year’s IBEW Photo Contest was this photo taken by San Diego Local 569 apprentice Desiree Bates, who caught a California sunrise behind fellow member and journeyman wireman Dwight Faulkner as the two prepared to run conduit.
      Could your photo take the top prize in this year’s competition? The deadline for entries has been extended to Nov. 1.

The deadline for the 2020 IBEW Photo Contest has been extended by one month, from Oct. 1 to Nov. 1, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Between busy jobs, the ongoing fight against COVID-19 and, in the U.S., preparations for local and federal elections, organizers thought it was only right to give members a few extra weeks to take and submit photos for this year’s contest.

IBEW members across North America work in amazing and picturesque environments every single day, from the highest mountain tops to the deepest subway tunnels and everywhere in between. With a high-quality camera right in your pocket, it takes just a few seconds to capture a spectacular and potentially prize-winning photo that really shows the world the important work IBEW members do every day.

High-resolution photo entries from active or retired IBEW members must contain union-specific content – for example, members at work or engaged in a union-related activity, or subjects that visually describe the work that we do or the brotherhood we share. And remember, photos may only be submitted electronically via this link.
