Art of Building Photo Contest

Art of Building Photo Contest The Art of Building photo contest is an international showcase for the very best digital photography of the built environment. It is open to both professional and amateur photographers.

The competition, run by the Chartered Institute of Building, celebrates the creativity of the industry, the passion of the people who work within it, and the impact their work has on those who make use of the final construction.

If you have a good eye for a photograph and are passionate about the built environment then take part in this year’s Art of Building competition. It is free to enter and your photograph could inspire thousands of people.

The overall Art of Building winner is chosen by both experts and the public.  It is a competition that celebrates buildings and the relationship people have with the built environment. Selected photographs feature in real public installations as the competition transforms construction hoarding into gallery spaces.

So if you want to share your vision and gain recognition as a photographer along the way then take part. You could walk away with the ‘Art of Building Photographer of the Year’ title and the £3,000 cash prize.

Building Inspiration
For images that focus on the architecture of buildings. Photographs in this category showcase the design of a building. This could be anything from an individual element to an entire cityscape.

Between People and Buildings
This category explores the relationship people have with the built environment. Entries capture a public or industry perspective of the interaction between people and building’s.

Creative Visions
The built environment is a product of human imagination, invention and talent. Creative Visions is the category that gives a unique and sometimes abstract perspective of the urban world around us.

Smartphone / Tablet
What can you capture with a mobile device? This is a new category aimed at photographers on the move who can eke out every ounce of creativity their smartphone or tablet has to offer.
