CFCI Photography Competition
In 2015 the Cambridge Forum for the Construction Industry ( "CFCI" ) launched a photography competition which was open to any student attending a secondary school or sixth form college in Cambridgeshire.
It was a very successful event and the winner, Gareth Nunns from Hills Road Sixth Form College, received the first prize of £300 and had his photograph published on the CFCI website and in the Cambridge News.
The CFCI has decided to run the competition again during October and November of this year as advertised on the enclosed flyer.
I do hope that you will feel able to support this venture by making the information available to your students.
The CFCI was founded many years ago by the team who designed and built Robinson College. In addition to hosting regular presentations and talks, on wide ranging subjects which affect or interest people involved in the construction industry, the CFCI has the objective of "promoting any charitable, educational, or other public project connected with the construction industry and particularly in the Cambridge area". The CFCI is itself a registered charity and our website is at www.cfci.org.uk (http://www.cfci.org.uk).
The rationale behind the photography competition is the hope that it might engender, amongst participating students, an interest in the built environment and potentially lead to the possibility of some students considering a career within the construction industry. By visiting our website to view the competition rules, students will also see information on projects which have won design awards together with details of forthcoming events and web-links to many firms within Cambridgeshire who are involved in the construction industry. They will also, of course, be able to view the competition entries from 2015 and see those which were selected for prizes.
