SAPIA explain "this 'competition' is more correctly a celebration of the work done by SAPIA members (and) for this reason, we encourage all members to enter at least one entry each year.

"Our independent judges are experienced in our industry and able to look past the glossy photos to the work beneath - in fact they love photos of the soil, excavation and base works."
