WITH MOST people taking time off for a well earned holiday in August, the deadline for the summer round of the NCE/Practical Photography Engineering Image 2005 competition has been extended by one week.
This should allow you to sneak in any exciting construction-related holiday snaps into the competition.
Entries so far have spanned mammoth feats of engineering such as the Millau Viaduct in France and Oresund Crossing between Sweden and Denmark, but also include the construction of a UK water treatment works and a new toilet for a slum in Jaipur, Rajasthan.
