APGA 50th Anniversary Photo Competition

Photo comp artwork

Commemorate our 50th anniversary in images

Your pipeline and gas industry photos could win the anniversary competition

The winning photo will be the cover of the 50th anniversary book

To help celebrate APGA’s 50th anniversary and to create a long-standing tribute to the contribution the pipeline and gas industries have made to Australia, APGA has joined with Great Southern Press to hold a photo competition.

Open to all past and present APGA members.

Submit as many entries as you like.

An independent panel judges the entries.

Help us record the history of the pipeline and gas industries in Australia and demonstrate its ongoing contribution to the nation.

The submitted images will be used throughout the year to remind everyone of milestones and achievements and to demonstrate the breadth of the industry.

The winning entry will be the cover of the APGA 50th Anniversary book and the best of the rest will be featured inside this must-have publication.

Find out more from Stuart Scudamore at The Australian Pipeliner or from APGA Training and Communication Manager Karen Polglaze.
