About the competition

Submissions are now open for the One Photo Challenge Photography Competition_ the biggest architectural photography contest that is held annually by Architizer. The competition honors powerful photographs of architecture that capture the essence of a place and tell something new or unprecedented about our surroundings and communicate a larger story about the meaning of home, city or country. You can take a photo of a building that describes what this contest is searching for (see more below).

Who can submit a photo?

  • The competition accepts a submission from everyone, including both professional and amateur photographers who demonstrate a passion for photography.
  • All you need to enter it is a phone or camera and a sharp eye for the world around you.

What should you submit?

  • Participants can submit one photograph that powerfully displays a specific atmosphere or mood that is created by an architectural structure or space.
  • The image can be taken anywhere in the world, and its theme can be at any scale. It can be taken from a wide-angle or close up, show a whole building or just a detail. As long as your photo shows part or all of a building or group of buildings, it is eligible.
  • Bear in mind, the challenge is to tell a story by sending your image, so think about what narrative your photo conveys.
  • Architizer encourages submitters to submit photographs that highlight architecture’s relationship with local cultural, social, political, and economic circumstances.
  • Photos that have a strong sense of time and place have the best chance of success. Your photograph should have a brief description, no more than 150 words.

How to submit?

Applicants can submit their image online through the Architizer’s website.
