Architect’s Eye, a competition which celebrates and encourages photography by architects, is now open. The competition, organised by International Art Consultants, is being held for the fourth time since its launch in 2007.
It is open to all qualified UK architects and is split into two distinct categories: Architecture and Place and Architecture and People. The former focuses solely on the aesthetics of the architecture and places it creates, while the latter explores and celebrates the interaction of people with the environments created by architects. There are no restrictions on which buildings qualify for the competition.
The winner in each category will receive a weekend break for two anywhere in the EU. There will also be Special Commendation prizes awarded at the judges’ discretion.
The finalist and winning works will be showcased in an exhibition at Roca London Gallery coinciding with the start of the London Festival of Architecture 2013.
This year the Architect’s Eye Judging Panel is chaired by leading architect Simon Allford, Director at Allford Hall Monaghan Morris. Alongside Allford, the prestigious judging panel will be composed of renowed architect Keith Priest (Fletcher Priest Architects), noted architectural photographers Quintin Lake and George Kavanagh, Martine Hamilton Knight (The Royal Photographic Society) and Dr Irena Murray (Sir Banister Fletcher Director, British Architectural Library, RIBA)
