Haven’t Quite Finished Your Photo Project?  2013 Photo Contest Deadline Has Been Extended until Nov. 30


September 30, 2013

The annual IBEW photo contest is a showcase for members to demonstrate their skills with a camera and shine a light on their too-often overlooked jobs. For 15 years, the IBEW Journal and The Electrical Worker have printed hundreds of photos of and by IBEW members at work—turning the lights back on after storms, building architectural marvels and performing hundreds of other jobs that contribute so much to communities across North America and even beyond.


Unfortunately, a computer server glitch caused technical problems that translated into a nearly two-week period people could not upload photos onto the Web site. (We still accept film prints via the postal service, but the overwhelming majority of our entries now come in through www.ibew.org.)

So the deadline to enter the 2013 Photo Contest has been extended until Nov. 30.
