CIOB launches construction photography competition

The Chartered Institute of Building has launched an international digital photography competition with a top prize of £1,500.

Now open for entries, the Art of Building contest aims to encourage entrants from around the world to explore and capture the art of building in an imaginative, inspiring and thought-provoking way.  

Last year, the competition attracted more than 1,000 entries from as far afield as Iran, Australia, India and China. The top prize was scooped by photographer Jim Dunn, whose dramatic shot of the construction of the Riverside Museum in Glasgow won the public vote.

Mr Dunn said: “Professionally, winning the competition gave me a real boost. I used the prize money to fund a photography trip to New York. There are so many iconic buildings there I was spoiled for choice.”  

This year, entries will be split into four categories:

  • Building Inspiration
  • Between People and Buildings
  • Creative Visions
  • Young Photographer of the Year

The competition is open to anyone over the age of 18, professionals and amateurs.

The overall winner will scoop £1,500 and be crowned Art of Building Photographer of the Year. The competition is open for entry until 31 May. For more details see the competition’s website.
