Each year, the International Fluid Power Society and the Fluid Power Journal hold a photo contest in honor of Fluid Power Professionals’ Day. This year’s contest runs from January 1 through March 31, 2018.

The 2018 categories are:

  • New Perspective: Photos that show fluid power used in novel ways and from views not everyone gets to see.
  • Teamwork: Photos of people working together using fluid power to get the job done.
  • Fun with Fluid Power: Photos that capture the joy of using, learning, or teaching about hydraulics and pneumatics.
  • The Muscle of Fluid Power: Photos that capture the might of fluid power in action.

A People’s Choice prize will be awarded based on votes during a one-week voting period – stay tuned for details.   

Photos are judged by the following criteria:

  • Subject: Does the photo clearly depict fluid power?
  • Originality: Is the photo fresh and unique? 
  • Visual Impact: Is the photo dramatic and visually impressive?
  • Quality: Is the photo in focus with good contrast, lighting, and capture the subject? (Hint: use a resolution of 300 ppi at 100% size for the best results.)

A panel of judges will announce three winners for each category on June 19, 2018 in celebration of Fluid Power Professional’s Day.

The following cash prizes will be awarded:

1st – $250, 2nd – $100, 3rd – $50, People’s Choice – $100
