The new competition "Photo of the Year" encourages students of architecture to look at architecture in interaction with its users: the children, young and old people who work, live and die in architecture.
Architectural photography is a special discipline, which, like drawing, has a strong connection to the development of architecture. The potential of architectural photography - also as an artistic development - helps challenge the way we look at and work with architecture, and in an image filled world the photo is today more relevant than ever before.
The winners of the new architecture photo competition receive 5000 euro for the first place, 2000 euro for the second place and 1000 euro for the third place. The winners are selected by an international jury whose members are: Torben Nielsen, Iwan Baan, Hélène Binet, Jens Markus Lindhe and Mette Sandbye.
The theme of this year's competition is "Architecture and People". The drawings of architects typically contain people, but when it comes to photography, they are often absent. The competition therefore encourages students of architecture to look at architecture in interaction with the users: with the children, young and old people who work, live and die in architecture.
