World Photo Day, to be celebrated on August 19th, is fast approaching. Last year we celebrated the occasion with a day of posts dedicated to the photographers who make ArchDaily - and indeed the architecture industry as we know it - possible, and this year we'd like to do something equally special with the help of our ArchDaily readers.
Using data from our My ArchDaily platform, we want to find out which photos are most popular among our readers, and then learn more about these images from the photographers who took them. To do this, we will take a selection of the images that have been bookmarked the most and then reach out to their photographers, asking them to share the story of how each image came together. So make sure to cast your "vote" for your favorite architectural image by bookmarking it in My ArchDaily!
