The IEEE Foundation and IEEE Standards Association are hosting the IEEE Photo Tech Challenge to encourage people to use their mobile devices to capture pictures of how technology impacts the world in three categories:
1. IEEE’s Greatest HITS (History, Innovation, Technology & Science)
2. Technology that Empowers Bright Minds
3. How Tech Helps Humanity
Participants can upload their photos to the Photo Tech Challenge page on the IEEE Foundation Facebook Page, where we already have a great collection of technology photos submitted. You can participate by submitting a photo or by voting for your favorites by giving them a “like”; the most “liked” images will be reviewed by an IEEE panel and top picks will be awarded a $100 Amazon Gift Card.
IEEE will be selecting top photos this summer.
Photos must be taken with a mobile device and fall under one of the three categories: IEEE’s Greatest HITS (History, Innovation, Technology & Science); Technology that Empowers Bright Minds; or How Tech Helps Humanity. Participants are to give a brief description of the photo, as well as share what inspired them to take the photo.
Need some inspiration? Check out the first round of top photos in each category from the IEEE Photo Challenge below. IEEE would like to congratulate Fahad Al Mamun, Maria Arun Kumar, and Hassan El Shenawy for sharing their photos that capture the global impact of technology.
