From the ground to the sky, from wide shots to delicate close-ups, nothing captures the heart and soul of our great union better than the annual Photo Contest.

Members proved that again in 2023 with a stunning array of images that were difficult to pare down to finalists for online voting. In February, thousands of brothers and sisters cast ballots — one vote per person — for first, second and third place, with honorable mentions awarded in every IBEW branch that had entries.

The top prize of $1,000 went to journeyman lineman Phil Weller of Seattle-based Local 77, who couldn't resist the symmetry of his crewmates working on transmission lines in rural Washington state — one of those moments in an otherwise routine day, he said, that remind him of the joys and wonders of being a lineman.

Ryan Caulfield of Ventura, Calif., Local 952 won second place and $750 for a mesmerizing scene he captured at daybreak as he and an IBEW brother were finishing a night shift repairing streetlights and cameras. Third place, with a $500 prize, went to journeyman lineman Paul Salgado of Diamond Bar, Calif., Local 47 for his photo of an apprentice up a pole amid a patch of forest after a storm. read_more
