Naf Selmani was announced as the winner of the Structure and Transport category as well as the competition’s overall winner for ‘The Hive’

A spectacular bee-inspired sculpture, a car VR simulator and a pyramid of pandas were all winners as the the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) launched its International Engineering Photography Competition.

The IET received over 500 photos from children, young people and adults across the world, who submitted photos to five categories: Digital, Environment and Energy, Structures and Transport, Robotics, and Design and Production.

“We launched our photography competition to help banish the outdated perception that engineers just fix and mend things. We received some brilliant images and I’d like to congratulate our winners,” said IET president Nick Winser.

The winners include:

Adult category winners

The overall winner was announced as Naf Selmani for his photo ‘The Hive’ (above), which captures the spectacular new bee-inspired sculpture at Kew Gardens from below, as one of the young visitors plays on the top glass floor. This multi-sensory experience integrates art, science and landscape architecture.
