Judge this year's Art of Building photography competition
Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) invites the world to decide the outcome of its 2012 international photography contest winner.
‘A clash of bold steel and colour at London’s flagship Olympic Stadium, a young pilgrim transfixed by an abandoned synagogue and a panoramic view of Hong Kong are just some of the artistic subjects to reach the final of this year’s CIOB international Art of Building photography competition,’ says the CIOB, describing some of this year’s entrants.
Now that the judges have had their say, and chosen twelve shortlisted images, the CIOB is inviting everyone to decide which of the twelve finalists will be awarded the prestigious title of ‘Art of Building Photographer of the Year’ and scoop a cash prize of £2,000. Voting is free and will take place via the competition website at artofbuilding.org.
The contest, which celebrates creativity in the construction industry, is also set to raise much-needed funds for a major project to build hurricane and earthquake resilient schools in Haiti, organised by development and disaster relief organisation, Article 25. A selection of the imaginative entries will be auctioned for the charity later in the year.
“It was another very strong year for the contest, with imaginative entries from around the world,” says CIOB Art of Building manager, Saul Townsend. “The twelve shortlisted images are sure to divide opinion. Fortunately, it’s free to vote for your favourite, so we’re now urging everyone, everywhere to get online and decide the winner.”
Voting will open on 16 August and close on 6 September. For more details on the competition and to vote, log on to artofbuilding.org. The competition can also be found on Twitter.
