The International Geosynthetics Society North American (IGS–NA) Chapter held the 2017 IGS North America Photo Contest this past winter. The first, second, and third place winners were announced at the Geotechnical Frontiers conference in Orlando, Fla., March 14, 2017.
Photographs were required to clearly display a geosynthetic in use. Photographs needed to provide a clear understanding of what geosynthetic type/function or event is being demonstrated. Contestants had to be an IGS–NA member in good standing.
