Our annual photo contest aims to get the best shots of arborists at work to help promote the industry and its professionals further afield. For the second year in a row we received over 300 entries through e-mail and our social media platforms and an amazing 457 people cast their vote to decide the winner.
Once again, a fantastic range of entries demonstrated some of the amazing locations that make up an arborists’ office and the variety of technical skills required in their day to day work.
We narrowed the entries down to 12 finalists and put it to a vote on Facebook. The result was by far the closest vote in the contests’ history with only 1.3% separating our top 4 finalists.
The winner of #ARBatWork 2019 was Matt Woods from Devon based Arb Approved Contractors Teign Trees & Landscapes with 17.5% of the votes.
Adrian Dowling, Jaki Wainer and Rob Mays finished tied for 2nd place with 16.2% each. Rick Wilson’s entry finished 3rd with 8.3%.
Thank you to all our finalists and to everyone who entered and voted. Entries for #ARBatWork 2020 will open in February 2020, so keep snapping photos and good luck next year.
The finalists and winners from the 2017-2019 contests were displayed on the giant video screen at this year’s ARB Show.
