The prestigious international Arcaid Architectural Photography Awards are now open for entries. Your chance to have your images on show in Singapore at the World Architecture Festival, attended by the world’s leading architects. The images will also be exhibited at Werkstatt, the cultural HQ of the Sto Group in London’s fashionable Clerkenwell district.
The awards highlight the expertise of the specialist architectural photographer. Nowhere in the architectural world is the relationship between the architect and the photographer more evident and more crucial than at the World Architecture Festival. In addition to the prestige and exposure there is a cash prize of $3,000 for the overall winner.
There are four categories in which to enter: Exteriors, Interiors, Sense of Place and Buildings in Use. The deadline for submissions is June 30, 2015.
David Borland commented: “For a photographer, these Awards offer valuable exposure to architects, publishers, critics and the wider public. The panel includes leading practitioners from across the world. In judging, they are encouraged to look beyond the architecture to the skill and creativity of the photographer. So, regardless of specialization, everyone stands an equal chance. Lynne Bryant and her colleagues at Arcaid have taken great trouble to publicize the Awards and the winning photographers. As well as an awards ceremony, our work has been featured in the design and architectural media, and exhibited in Singapore and London. Entering last year was well worthwhile—I’m now looking forward to this year’s Awards.”
The jury includes; Katy Harris, Head of Communications, Fosters and Partners; Clifford Pearson, Deputy Editor at Architectural Record, New York; Amy Croft, Curator at Sto; and Hufton + Crow, award-winning architectural photographers.
