2017 Photo Contest Winners

The Photo Contest was created to celebrate the wonder of fluid power and the talented professionals who work in the industry. This year’s contest resulted in many fun and unique images that showcase powerful machinery, professionals in action, and creative fun with fluid power. A panel of judges was assigned the task of choosing winners. The judges selected three winners for each of the following categories:


Visual Impact

Artistic Quality

Depicts Fluid Power

A one-week voting period followed the end of the contest allowing voters to pick their favorite picture to win the People’s Choice award. Lastly, one picture was chosen for the Staff Pick prize.
