Now in its second year, the NPC–CIMPOR Develop A New Angle On Concrete photographic competition attracted more than 400 entries from enthusiastic amateur and professional photographers across KwaZulu-Natal. This was a 100% growth on 2009. Photographers were required to capture images which feature concrete and cement predominantly in their design, whilst also being beautiful, interesting and striking!

Inspired by KwaZulu-Natal cityscapes, concrete bridges and a variety of innovative concrete structures, the judges were impressed by the extremely high standard of the submitted works. Commenting on this, Mo Hope-Baille of the Photographic Society of South Africa said, “We were looking for images that celebrated the art of cement and concrete; that told a story and delivered on brief. And, the extremely high standard of the entries we received made judging extremely difficult.”

The three award-winning photographs along with the top 50 finalists will be on display at the KZNSA Gallery with entrance free to the public.

The NPC–CIMPOR Develop a New Angle on Concrete Photographic Competition runs from November 2 to 7. (There is no opening function for this exhibition.) The KZNSA Gallery is situated in Bulwer Road, Glenwood. More information on 031 277 1705 or email: or visit
