North Sea sunsets, heavy industrial landscapes and the majestic beauty of wind turbine clusters are just some of the awe-inspiring images captured in a photography competition by the UK’s biggest energy sector training provider.

AIS Survivex, which trains up to 150,000 workers annually for the global energy sector, launched its photography competition to celebrate and showcase some of the beautiful and dramatic backdrops seen by its customers every day.

Anyone working in the energy sector – from oil rig workers to wind technicians and power plant engineers – is being encouraged to enter with a winning prize of free industry training, potentially worth thousands of pounds.

Many industry-approved training courses are mandatory for energy workers due to strict compliance with high safety standards. The owner of the winning image will be able to choose from more than 450 training courses and training locations in Scotland and North East England. Courses cover everything from skills such as rope access, offshore survival, emergency response and trades like blade repair, non-destructive testing (NDT) or blaster-sprayer.

Hundreds of entries have been received so far but the closing date of 9 September is looming so anyone else wanting to enter should act soon.

Linzi Ryan, Head of Marketing at AIS Survivex, says, “Many people new to energy, often ask what it’s like working in the sector. We couldn’t think of a better way to showcase this then by celebrating some of the stunning backdrops our delegates get to experience day in, day out. Our photography competition is open to anyone working in energy and the hundreds of entries we’ve received so far have been incredible. Absolutely jaw-dropping.”

“The winning shot will be decided by a judging panel, who will assess the entries based on the quality and impact of the image. This image will then be displayed pride-of-place in our training centres for hundreds of people to see every day, as well as being shared on our social media channels and our website. And of course, we’ll credit the talented photographer who captured the image and even frame it for them. With an unbeatable prize of training potentially worth thousands, it’s definitely worth entering. We’re urging people to get snapping and send us their images before the deadline,” Ryan continues.

To enter, email your photo to marketing@ais-survivex.com. The competition closes at midnight on Friday, 9 September, with the winner announced on 16 September.
