WWEM 2020


* Photos Submission Deadline: Closed

SWIG will be holding a photography competition in the spring/summer of 2018, with the shortlisted photos on display at WWEM, Telford and the winner presented with a £200 prize during the gala dinner on 21st November. The focus of the completion will be the use of sensors in the water sector. There will be 2 categories for entries for pictures:

  • Close up water sensors
  • Water monitoring technology in action

(with no branding on display in either case) and the judging will take into account technical excellence and artistic interpretation of the subject.
