Art of Building is an annual international photography competition run by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), the competition attracts thousands of entries each year, as keen amateurs and experienced professionals battle for international recognition and two £1,500 cash prizes. This is a competition that celebrates buildings and the relationship people have with the built environment. If your photograph is selected as a finalist or is highly commended, it will be featured in public installations as the competition transforms construction hoarding spaces into art galleries. Last year’s winners included Alexandr Bormotin, from Ivanovo in Russia, who won the Public Choice Award with his futuristic image of a new underground train station in Moscow, entitled Metro station. Pedro Luis Ajuriaguerra Saiz, a professional photographer from northern Spain, was awarded the Judges’ Prize for capturing Hemisferic, a science museum in Valencia, designed by Santiago Calatrava (pictured).
