• Bridges Inspire!

    The American Society of Civil Engineers is looking for striking photographs of bridges, taken in the United States or abroad, that highlight design and engineering achievements of civil engineers.

    Contestants must be individuals over 18 years of age or engineering firms, and they must be the creator or owner of their submitted photographs. Contestants may enter up to 5 photos. Each individual photo may not be entered in more than one category and must be free of watermarks. Cash prizes will be awarded, and all submissions are eligible for inclusion in our next Bridges Calendar.

    Judges will recognize two winners in each of the seven categories:

    • All Bridges
    • Small Town Bridges (towns with populations less than 100,000)
    • Historic Bridges (in service before 1970 and historically important to the country/region where it is located)
    • Pedestrian Bridges
    • High Dynamic Range (HDR) Images
    • Black & White Images
    • ASCE Student Members

    In addition, 12 photographs will be selected as finalists for the Viewer’s Choice Award, which will be voted on by the general public.

    To enter, contestants must complete the online entry form below and upload the photographs as directed. Details about the contest, including eligibility requirements and category descriptions, are available in the
    2020 Official Rules.
