HRIA launches Photo of the Year competition

The HRIA launches its 2020 photo of the year competition.

In the pursuit of some light relief from the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic is having on many of our members, the HRIA believes that, where possible, we should push ahead with business-(as-much)-as-usual activities, particularly those that will help ensure our industry endures once we get through this period of instability.

Business is far from usual, and for many, work looks very different. So in line with the HRIA’s planned photo competition, we thought it would be useful to capture how different things are, so that we can look back in years to come and have a visual record of how things looked during the pandemic.

We are on the look-out for a photo that reflects the hire industry in Australia. In these current times this may be different to usual – perhaps business has slowed down and you have a yard full of equipment, maybe you have found opportunities to hire out your equipment for a different purpose than you had previously, you may have picked up jobs in different locations than usual, or it may be business as usual. Whatever the case we would love to see your snaps.

The photos will be judged by the HRIA National Office with the winning shot receiving a $150 Visa Gift card and being published on the Hire & Rental News website (and newsletter) in September. This competition is open to all staff working for HRIA members and entrants must own the copyright to the photograph entered.

Entries should be submitted to sallycannon@hireandrental.com.au and entries close 15 September 2020.
