ARCHIVE CIOB competition
THIS COMPETITION HAS CLOSED
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 5PM FRIDAY 3 MAY.
As well as receiving £500, the winning article will be featured on the Designing Buildings Wiki home page, and the winner will be invited to write a blog post for the home page. We will also feature four runners-up who will receive commendations from the CIOB, and all suitable entries will be added to the site.
It’s a great opportunity to win some cash, get a competition win on your CV and raise your profile at the same time. Our 2012 competition was won by Rachel Ribeiro, for her article Geothermal Pile Foundations. Now if you Google “geothermal pile foundations”, you’ll see her article comes top.
All we ask is that articles are new to the site, they are encyclopaedic in style (think Wikipedia) and they are related to the construction industry. Articles might cover subjects to do with property development, law, project management, design, construction, history or theory. They can be purpose written for the competition, or might be based on something you already have in your archive.
Saleem Akram, Director of Construction Innovation and Development at the CIOB said: "Designing Buildings Wiki is becoming an indispensable resource for anyone involved in building. This competition is a great opportunity for people to be a part of the Designing Buildings Wiki project, and to raise their own profile at the same time."
