Concrete of Life 2022 celebrates one of the most popular building materials known to man. Used to build everything from skate ramps and bridges to high-rise flats and contemporary designer homes, concrete can be molded, painted and sealed to create striking rugged structures. 

More than 14,000 images were entered into this year's competition from photographers in every continent. Split into four categories, each with an amateur and professional sub-category they included; Beauty and Design, Concrete in Daily Life, Concrete Infrastructure, and Urban Concrete. Photographers could use any device available to them whether that be a camera phone, a drone or a mirrorless camera.
