Submit Your Construction Photos: The 5th Annual Axe Contest is Now Open

Share Your Photos from Behind the Build

If you’ve been a regular reader of our blog, you’ve read the posts from our “Behind the Build” series. These weekly spotlights shed light on individual experiences from builders themselves. While the stories are unique, one common thread remains; it takes incredible people behind a project to make it successful.

Construction isn’t just about the finished product. A building takes every team member, each process and tool and even down to the single nails to make it complete. To celebrate every component (small and large) that contribute to a project, help us highlight the talents and beauty behind construction in our annual photo contest.

We’re excited to announce that PlanGrid’s 5th Annual Axe Contest is officially open! For those of you not familiar, the Axe contest is a yearly PlanGrid tradition to compete for the ultimate prize: a Best Made axe. To enter, we’re asking industry professionals to share photos of projects and the people behind them, to show off what they’ve built together with PlanGrid.

5th Annual Axe Contest Categories

The work it takes to turn plans into a building or structure is nothing short of incredible. Whether it’s capturing individual workers, your team on a jobsite or the finished project itself, we want you to show us what’s behind your project–from plan to completion.

Following this year’s theme, “Behind the Build,” two categories are open for submissions:

  • Picture Perfect: Show off your latest project in all its glory. Submissions to this category include new and innovative designs stunningly executed.
  • Day in the Life: Nothing gets built without teamwork. Submissions to this category highlight the collaboration and camaraderie that exists on construction teams.

The Prizes

We have another year of fantastic prizes. In total, 10 of the best submissions will win a prize this year:

  • (2) 1st Place Winners across each category will receive the PlanGrid Axe
  • (4) Finalists for each category will receive PlanGrid Hatchets

How to Enter

The contest opens today. To enter the 5th Annual Axe Contest, submit your photos and response through our form by January 25, 2019.
