CCNZ is proud to announce the EPIC Photo Competition People's Choice Awards - a competition where the public gets to name their favourite photo sent in by the men and women who work to construct New Zealand's civil infrastructure.

The People's Choice voting system is live at, and all votes cast before the competition closing date of 31 October 2021 go into the draw to win fantastic prizes including a RYZE Tello drone, a Z gift card, die-cast models from TransDiesel and goodies from EPIC.

The photo with the most votes at 31 October 2021 will be named the EPIC Photo Competition People’s Choice Award winner, and the photographer will get a year’s subscription to Contractor Magazine, a RYZE Tello drone, a diecast model from TransDiesel and goodies from EPIC.

The photos were sent in by New Zealand's civil contractors over five rounds of the EPIC Photo Competition, which aims to inspire people to take up the tools of the civil trades, and to remind civil contractors why they love the work they do.

The EPIC Photo Competition is a partnership between Civil Contractors New Zealand's EPIC Careers in Infrastructure career promotion platform and Contractor Magazine. A winner from each of the five rounds was selected by a judging panel of CCNZ and Contractor Magazine staff, and the winning entry from each round was featured in the magazine, and in a story on the EPIC 'Real Stories' blog, which is distributed to schools and career seekers through the EPIC e-newsletter.
