Get involved in our #summerselfie competition

Summer’s well and truly here, although here in British Steel HQ you might not think it was from the weather! But we’re embracing August with optimism and offering our social media followers the fantastic opportunity of winning a £100 Love2Shop voucher and an all-access tour of our site in Scunthorpe to see our exciting steelworks!

Steel makes the world go round, literally. Our steel goes into many amazing things – we make the longest rails in Europe, the tyre cord in your car tyres, the tracks on bulldozers – even down to everyday items such as paper clips. But did you know our steel also goes into some of the world’s iconic buildings and bridges?

While you’re on your travels during the peak holiday season, why not take a selfie with some of the buildings we helped to make (see below) and enter our competition!

  • The Shard, London
  • Hudson Yards, New York
  • Olympic Stadium, London
  • Walkie Talkie (20 Fenchurch Street), London

Post your selfie on either our Facebook page (BritishSteelUK) or Tweet us @BritishSteelUK, making sure you use the hashtag #DidYouKnow

The competition will close at 11.59pm on Thursday 31 August 2017 and the winner will be chosen by Construction Managing Director Richard Farnsworth w/c 4 September 2017.
