Building is launching its first ever competition to uncover its readers' artistic potential. We are looking for the industry's best wordsmith and the best photographer – and when we find them, we're going to give them £500 each and publish their work in our 16 August issue. The only condition is that the work should have some connection with construction …

The judges for the short story competition will be author Jonathan Meades and Building editor Adrian Barrick. The best photograph will be picked by photographer David Levene and Building art editor Sam Jenkins.

Please submit your work, including your name, job title, company, address and/or email address by 24 July to Dipti Patel at Building, 7th floor, Anchorage House, 2 Clove Crescent, East India Dock, London E14 2BE, or email it to
