AAA Photography Competition 2021
Open to all – the competition looks for new photographs that “celebrate the joy we see in architecture”. Submissions may take a personal interpretation of the theme and could include “abstract representations”.
The main judging criteria for the competition – supported by the Cobra Foundation – include composition, originality, suitability for public display and subject. Images may be enhanced prior to submission, but composite images and layered compositions will not be accepted.
According to the brief: “The pandemic has highlighted the importance of the way we live, work and interact with each other; with the use of photography allowing us to relive memories and to feel connected, but above all to capture those special moments.
“As we continue to adapt to the new normal, let’s celebrate the joy that architecture brings to our daily lives. We’re interested in seeing what the joy of architecture means to you. It can be buildings, people or capturing moments of everyday life; we are open to all interpretations of the theme. ‘
