The world’s biggest photography competition for the built environment, the Art of Building, has launched today (12 October).
Each year the competition attracts thousands of entries, as
keen amateurs and experienced professionals battle for international recognition
and two £1,500 cash prizes.
Last year’s winners included Alexandr Bormotin, from Ivanovo
in Russia, who won the Public Choice Award for his incredible futuristic image
of a new underground train station in Moscow, entitled Metrostation, and Pedro Luis
Ajuriaguerra Saiz, a professional photographer from northern Spain, who was
awarded the Judges’ Prize for capturing Hemisferic, a science museum in
Valencia, designed by Santiago Calatrava.
The competition is free to enter and open to anyone aged 18 or
over. Entries can be made from 12 October 2020 until 15 November 2020. Up to
three photographs per person may be entered. Winners will be announced on 26
January 2021 following the voting rounds.
There are two awards to be won: the £1,500 Judges’ Prize,
chosen by the judges, and the £1,500 Public Choice Award chosen by the public
through an online vote.
Entries will not be accepted outside of the advertised
closing date or if they are embedded with borders or locks.
Caroline Gumble, chief executive of the CIOB and part of the
judging panel for this year, said: “I am proud to be involved again this year
in my second CIOB Art of Building competition. Every year I am inspired by the
beauty that the public see in the world’s structures, and I greatly look forward
to seeing what’s submitted this time. As someone who can’t resist taking photos
of buildings, construction sites and architecture, I know there must be lots of
people out there with amazing and stimulating images to share.”
