The Art of Building Photography Competition

The Art of Building Photography Competition

Deadline: November 15, 2020
Entry Fee: Free
Prizes: £1,500

The Art of Building photography competition is an international showcase for the very best digital photography of the built environment. It is open to both professional and amateur photographers. There are two awards to be won: the Judges’ Choice and the Public’s Choice. Both winners will receive a £1500 prize.

Our expert judges will select the shortlisted photos to be put through to the public vote. Usually around twelve photos are selected. The public will then vote for their favourite and the Public’s Choice winner will be determined. The judges will also decide which from the shortlisted photos will be the winner of the Judges’ Choice prize.

The competition is run by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), the largest and most influential professional body for construction management in the world. CIOB members work worldwide in the development, conservation and improvement of the built environment.

It is the Art of Building competition which 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.
