Elevator World’s 2019 Photo Contest

Elevator World’s 2019 Photo Contest

Stunning artistry, strong participation characterize this year’s iteration.

Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, it did. We’re talking about ELEVATOR WORLD’s Seventh Annual Photo Contest, for which quality and enthusiasm reached all-time highs. Going purely by the numbers, this year’s contest received entries that were comparable to last year’s: 176 from 17 countries in Australasia, Europe, India, the Middle East and North America. More than 2,130 voted online to choose 23 winners in eight categories from 108 finalists. This year featured a new category: “Industry Art/Illustrations.”

On a purely subjective level, we were struck by the amazing quality of the photographs. Several of this year’s entries could easily be on display in international art museums, and at least one staff member was so inspired that she changed her screensaver to an entry showing an outdoor, glass elevator at sunset across the river from Manhattan that appeared in the “City Skylines & Tall Buildings” category. We all have our favorites, and you likely do, too.

EW appreciates those who participated by submitting photos or voting for them. All qualified photo submissions are posted in a special gallery. Submissions are being accepted starting September 1 for next year’s contest. Go to EW Photo Contest to share your photos with the elevator world and earn a chance to win US$250 cash or the equivalent in Elevator World, Inc. educational products or advertising, in addition to appearing in this space next year.
