Picture perfect workplace? Win free training in our #WorldPhotographyWeek competition!

The energy sector offers some awe-inspiring backdrops – oil platforms in the middle of a stormy North Sea, wind turbines stretching thousands of metres up or just the industrial landscape from your office window.

To celebrate #WorldPhotographyWeek, we’re launching a photography competition to showcase some of the amazing workplaces our delegates spend time in.

We want to see images of the incredible views our delegates experience day-in, day-out and in return we’ll give you the chance to win ANY training course or package free-of-charge.

Win the course or package of your choice…

With more than 450 industry-approved courses in our portfolio, you’ll be spoilt for choice. How about Global Wind Organisation (GWO) Basic Safety Training, Greenhand Oil & Gas New-Starter Package or add to your skills with a rope access qualification. The choice is yours.

Linzi Ryan, head of marketing at AIS Survivex, said:

“We couldn’t let World Photography Week pass by without acknowledging and celebrating some of the stunning images we see every day from our delegates working in the energy sector. That’s why we wanted to launch this competition to showcase some of the beautiful backdrops you can enjoy when working in the energy industry.

“Whether it’s a carefully staged scene taken on an SLR, or a quick snap on your mobile phone camera – if it captures the beauty of our sector, we want to see it.”

“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 of pounds, it’s definitely worth entering. So, get snapping!”
