Modern architecture

These days, our image-obsessed culture has got us experiencing large numbers of architectural photographs on our feeds online. This enables viewers to experience a visual understanding of a building, especially an innovative, modern one, from many different perspectives; even if they may never be able to visit the building themselves. Architectural photography “lifts the building out of time, out of breath” and makes it a piece of art that everyone can take part in.

Industrial and Commercial Architecture Exteriors

This contest is for your photos of the exterior of buildings which are used for commercial or industrial purposes. Examples include factories, warehouses, shops, hotels and office blocks. You could show a close view of the industrial or commercial building, showing off the architectural details, or a wider view of the entire structure within its immediate surroundings. Make sure the architecture of the buildings is clearly visible, so please do not enter distant views of industrial or city skylines. Buildings should clearly be for industry or commerce, and be photographed from the outside. Images can be in colour or black and white.

Urbex

This contest is for your urban exploration photos. Urban exploration (often abbreviated as urbex or EU) consists of exploring artificial structures, often abandoned ruins or poorly visible components of the urban environment. I look forward to seeing your best urbex images.
