Civil engineering can be ugly. But it can also be beautiful, interesting and exciting - it just depends on how you look at it. Or capture it.
This week we are launching a new competition to find the images that explain this diversity and really celebrate the built environment. As well as seeing your pictures in print, we have a range-topping Nikon D70 digital SLR camera worth £1000 to give away.
Practical Photography is working with us to help spread the word and encourage both engineers and non-engineers to express their relationship with the changing landscape. We want to highlight the fact that engineering isn't just about wobbly bridges or delayed trains.
So whether it is a new office block being constructed, a dilapidated house being demolished, a stretch of track being repaired in the early hours of the morning or painting the first markings on a new road, we want you to capture that moment in a photograph.
The competition will be run over three rounds with the emphasis on what is happening right now. We start this week with the spring round followed by the summer and autumn rounds between now and Christmas.
Winners will be chosen by a panel of top judges at the end of each round, awarding cash prizes of £50, £100 and £250.
The overall winner of the NCE Engineering Image 2005 award will be announced at NCE's Christmas reception and will scoop the Nikon D70 camera kit which includes an 18-70mm lens.
So get your cameras out and start snapping!
