Grand Prize Winning Photo Submitted by Gary Ng titled “NENT Landfill Extension” from the city of Hong Kong – Sha Tau Kok area
Gary Ng submitted the Grand Prize Winning Photo – Congratulations! Thank you to all of IGS Members who participated in the 1st Annual IGS Photo Contest. We are thrilled to acknowledge that approximately 140 photos were submitted to the contest. And the quality was really outstanding! The judging was conducted electronically by a panel of IGS Members from Asia, Africa, Australia, Europe, South & North America. The photos were given points in each of 3 categories: the clarity and technical quality of the photo, the photo’s demonstration of “geosynthetics in action” and the aesthetic quality of the photo. Please look for these excellent Prize winning photos which will be on display at the 9th ICG in a variety of different ways as well as in the Photo Gallery IGS Web site.
