SETE, Société d’Exploitation de la Tour Eiffel, wanted to give its employees a chance to participate in the Tower’s 130th anniversary celebrations. Sparked by a small group of enthusiasts, an internal photo competition was organized, and some real talent was discovered! All of SETE’s employees were invited to participate, from cashiers to technicians or people in support roles, and they submitted more than 150 striking photos of exceptional moments or points of view from “their” Tower.
Prizes were awarded to 13 photos, and all the employees were invited to see them during an exhibition.
Through its 340 employees, SETE maintains, operates, and enlivens the Eiffel Tower as part of a delegation of public services contract with the City of Paris, which owns 99% of its capital. The Eiffel Tower belongs to the City of Paris.
