Share your vertical snaps for the chance to win weekly prizes including a MacBook Air
Over the next six weeks Blueprint is teaming up with acoustic ceiling system and wall panel manufacturer Ecophon for an exciting photography competition on social media titled #verticalview.
Coinciding with the launch of Ecophon's Akusto One, a new series of flexible sound absorbers that can be used to create innovative designs and patterns on a wall, we would like you to share an image of something vertical or vertical inspired.
We know you're a creative lot so we've left the brief open for interpretation. Look up and around you, #verticalview competition is all about sharing architecturally interesting or graphically inspiring moments, whether it's the straight lines of a skyscraper, the patterns of tiles on the underground or the shadows cast by scaffolding poles. Most of all, be creative... do you see patterns in overhead wires, intricate details on rooftops or shapes in treetop branches?
To enter, simply upload your image to Instagram or Twitter, mention and follow both @blueprint.mag and @ecophonuk, and make sure to use the hashtag #verticalview so we can see your image(s).
Each week, we'll pick our favourite who will win a rotring rapidograph Technical Drawing Pen 4 Pen College set, worth £80, then at the end of the six weeks, all the images will go into the draw to win a MacBook Air. Entries will be judged on creative flare, unusual composition and an eye for detail.
