Demolition News was recently contacted by someone who was keen to show off their photographic skills. The first couple of shots that came through were very good indeed and further investigation proved that the person responsible was a very accomplished photographer with a keen eye for the demolition industry.

Imagine our surprise then when we discovered that the photographer was a 14 year old boy with no links to the industry whatsoever! The person in question is Jack Westwood who comes from Walsall in the UK’s West Midlands.

Well, young Jack has inspired us to run our first-ever photographic competition with the winner receiving a 1:50 scale model of a Komatsu PC 450 LC high reach excavator for their troubles. The winning photo will also be featured here on

So what are we looking for?

Quite simply, we’re looking for the most dramatic or downright unusual photograph depicting demolition. The subject matter might be men, machines or structures. It can be new or old, black and white or colour, and feature the very latest techniques or hark back to the ball and chain of days gone by – we don’t mind so long as it’s artistic.

Photos can be submitted, ideally in high resolution format, to
Closing date is 1 May 2009.

And don’t forget; young Jack Westwood has set the bar high (and Jack, if you’re reading this, you ARE allowed to enter!!)

Happy Snapping!
