EW is now accepting entries for its second annual “Photos of the Elevator World Contest”.

Last year, we received more than 200 submissions from 10 countries, with both companies and amateur photo enthusiasts across the globe participating. Well, it’s that time of year again—send us your best shots and you could win cash and be published in ELEVATOR WORLD magazine! We look forward to viewing the elevator world through your unique lens.

We are looking for dynamic, well-composed and aesthetically pleasing photos that help tell the story of the remarkable world of vertical transportation; photos can be of those in working conditions, but please do not submit photos showing unsafe conditions or behavior.

An EW panel of judges will first choose up to 20 finalists from each category. Those finalists will then be presented online during the month of May 2014 where our readers will vote and ultimately decide the best of the best. The winners and runner-ups from each category will be featured in the August 2014 issue of ELEVATOR WORLD and highlighted online. In addition, ALL qualified submissions will be posted in a special photo contest gallery on www.elevatorworld.com.

All entries must be received by 5 p.m. (CST), April 30, 2014.
