Tower of the Month
Enter your scaffold tower pictures into the Tower of the Month competition! You’ll be helping us build a library of images we can use to showcase the variety of ways that towers can be used and to promote safe practice. And if you win, you’ll get the added kudos of your photo being given the PASMA seal of approval.
Step 1 – you submit your best tower photo using the form below
Step 2 – our safety experts inspect it to ensure it’s a shining example of good practice
Step 3 – we post our favourite 3 photos on social media and the one with the most likes is declared Tower of the Month
Step 4 – we use the winning photo on the PASMA homepage and social media channels for one month and give you a shiny graphic that you can use to promote your win
You can submit your photos until 29th March 2020. Our shortlist will appear on social media within two weeks, after which the winner will be declared. We’re trying this competition out as part of our Tower Week celebrations but if it goes well, we’ll make it a regular thing.
Who can enter
PASMA members and their employees can of course enter the competition. In addition, we’d love to see entries from absolutely anyone else, as long as you are not involved in the manufacture, hire or supply of scaffold towers or in training people in their use, or in assembling complex tower structures for clients.
What we're looking for
* Towers! They could be on the production line, training room, delivery van, construction site, exhibition show… we don’t care, as long as there’s at least one tower or component in the picture
* If there are people in the picture, make sure they’re happy to be included and wearing appropriate PPE
* Good quality, high resolution images
* We’re not expecting professional photographs, amateur snaps are great!
* It must be your own photograph
* Landscape photos are preferred
* No prominent company branding please
* We’ve saved the most important for last – the towers in your photo must be assembled correctly and being used safely
