Congratulations to our EPIC photo competition entries

The Winner, Seb from Hunter Civil at Queenstown – clearing trees to unveil this superb view on a new house section.

Round one of the EPIC Photo Competition is a wrap. With more than 40 entries, it was a great start to this partnership between EPIC Careers in Infrastructure and Contractor Magazine, with skilful photos sent in from a range of companies and locations.

The entries are published at, and are also live at the entry page at, which is now open for the next competition round.

Just before Christmas, Seb Jones an excavator operator working for Hunter Civil, hopped out of the cab and captured his machine and the Remarkables Range in the background following a satisfying day’s work. And that is what the EPIC programme is all about!

“It was a beautiful day at work,” Seb tells us.

“We had just reached the top of the hill widening the track and clearing some trees. That was the first day we’d got up there.

“We had just cleared it to the top and saw the view for the first time. It was awesome.”

The Runner-up

A very close second was this photo of a roller in action during a thunderstorm (not close enough to be a hazard, obviously). It was taken by Kate White of Fulton Hogan Southland.

The prizes

The winner of each round receives a Z gift card to the value of $300, and also features on the EPIC website and social media. They also receive a scale model of some of the awesome technology contractors use on the job.

This time, it’s a VÖGELE Super 3000-2 Highway Class paver. The runner up received A $100 Z gift card.
