Building photography competition

The Art of Building photography competition is an international showcase for the very best digital photography of the built environment. The competition is run by the Chartered Institute of Building.

There are four categories:
• Architecture
Focussing on the design and style of the built environment this category celebrates everything from the small details that make up a structure to entire cityscapes.
• Human interaction
Entries in this category capture the story of how people interact with buildings. From those who build our infrastructure to those who live, work or play alongside the built environment.
• Nature and the built environment
In an increasingly built world how do buildings impact upon the natural world and vice versa? Photography in this category explores the relationship between man-made structures and nature.
• Creative vision
Human imagination, invention and talent is poured into the world we build around ourselves. Past winners in this category have pushed the boundaries of what is possible in creative photography, giving a unique and sometimes abstract perspective.

Entry is limited to no more than three photographs per person.


The overall prize for the winning photography is £3,000.
