Breakbulk Photo & Video Contests

Put your company in the spotlight. Six times a year, Breakbulk hosts themed photo and video contests around a particular aspect of moving breakbulk and project cargo. The contests are open to all industry participants. Winners are selected by visitors to the website, so all participating companies are encouraged to get out the vote among their employees and friends.

Your photos and videos will be featured on and in the promotions around each contest. And, entries are shown in big displays at Breakbulk events — depending on the timing of the contest, we also feature live voting at the events. Photo winners get a full page in Breakbulk Magazine and all entries are considered for use on the Breakbulk website, mailings and other materials where your company will be credited. It’s a great opportunity to show off your work and take advantage of free publicity.

Check the schedule below for upcoming contest themes and deadlines. We’ve also included links to all past contests. We hope to see your most challenging transports!
