Submit Your Photos

How to enter

Take photos

Photos should be of a surveying theme or those taken at locations where you are surveying.

Some surveyors like to take “today’s office” photos, which are typically a view of their job site. These can be just about anything, such as spectacular mountain views, construction sites, high-rise buildings, or wherever you are working. Drone images are allowed and welcomed.

Be aware that you’ll need to get permission from people that are included in your photos.


The health of yourself, your coworkers and the project are of primary importance. Do not put yourself in harm’s way or cause disruption for the sake of a photograph.

Submit your entries

You can submit as many entries as you like, one photo per entry.

Photos must be original, unaltered work.

All entries must be submitted using the online form below by October 14, 2022 at midnight Pacific time to be eligible.

By submitting a photograph, you agree to the terms, conditions and rules of this contest (see entry form for details).

Any time you include people, brand names, or other identifiable objects, you’ll need to have permission (we’ll provide you with the proper forms).

Wait for results

We’ll select one Grand Prize Winner and 12 Honorable Mentions to be included in the 2023 SurveyorConnect Calendar!
