The prestigious International Arcaid Architectural Photography Awards are now open for entries.
It's your chance to have your images on show in Singapore at the World Architecture Festival, attended by the world's leading architects, a unique annual event.
The images will also be exhibited at Werkstatt, the cultural headquarters of the Sto Group in London's fashionable Clerkenwell district.

The awards highlight the expertise of specialist architectural photographers. In addition to the prestige and exposure there is a cash prize of $3,000 for the overall winner.

David Borland commented "For a photographer, these Awards offer valuable exposure to architects, publishers, critics and the wider public. The panel includes leading practitioners from across the world. In judging, they are encouraged to look beyond the architecture to the skill and creativity of the photographer. So, regardless of specialisation, everyone stands an equal chance. Lynne Bryant and her colleagues at Arcaid have taken great trouble to publicise the Awards and the winning photographers. As well as an awards ceremony, our work has been featured in the design and architectural media, and exhibited in Singapore and London. Entering last year was well worthwhile - I'm now looking forward to this year's Awards"
