RIBA launches new photography competition
The RIBA has today launched a new photography competition, Architecture 2012, open to entries from all RIBA members in any category.
With the theme, Architecture 2012, the RIBA invites images that capture any interpretation of architecture in whatever form – the inspiring, the beautiful, the intriguing or even the bizarre.
Ten winning images will be selected by judges including Morley von Sternberg, architectural and portrait photographer and Angela Brady, RIBA President. They will be printed as postcards and sold in the RIBA Bookshops. The photographer of the best image will receive the latest iPad. All proceeds from the sales of the postcards will go to the RIBA Education Fund, a registered charity that makes grants to students of architecture in the UK who are experiencing financial hardship.
RIBA President Angela Brady said:
“A members’ photography card competition is something that Robert Elwall, Photographs Curator of the British Architectural Library, and I talked about doing to celebrate the best Architecture in 2012. I am looking forward to seeing some fantastic photographs to capture Architecture of today. This competition is a fitting tribute to Robert who sadly died earlier this year. I am keen to raise vital funds for RIBA Education once these cards go on sale”.
The closing date has been extended until Friday 8 June at 12noon. For the full details and how to enter please visit www.architecture.com/competitions
