UPDATE: The winning images will go on show February 28th in London at the "Building Images: The Arcaid Images Architectural Photography Awards 2013" exhibition. They will remain on view through April 25th inside a renovated factory on 7–9 Woodbridge Street.

The Architectural Photography Awards, hosted by Arcaid Images, have announced the winner, runner-up and shortlisted images for this year's best architecture photos. A distinguished panel architects and editors that included Catherine Slessor, Eva Jiricna, Zaha Hadid, Ivan Harbour and Graham Stirk were asked to look beyond architecture and into composition, atmosphere and scale to ultimately judge four categories of images: Interiors, Exteriors, Sense of Place and Building In Use. Their selections reflect this vision admirably. 

The competition aims to draw attention to the expertise of the architectural photographer, "translating the sophistication of architecture into a readable two dimensions to explain and extol the character, detail and environment of the project." "The experience of architecture for the majority of people is via images," reads a statement by Arcaid Images, "The architecture itself is the focus and the image regarded only as the medium." 

Without further ado, the following are this year's selected images:

Exteriors Shortlist: "Images should be of the exterior of a building communicating the nature of that building."
