The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) is asking the public to help choose this year’s Art of Building Photographer of the Year as the competition now enters its final stage.

The competition run by the CIOB celebrates the creativity of the construction industry and the built world around us. Now in its tenth year, the public has until 10 January 2020 to choose their winner

Only twelve photographs made it past the judging panel out of the thousands of images submitted from more than 100 countries around the world.  In the final are photographs from the UK, Europe, Russia, South America, and the Middle East all showcasing an intriguing myriad of designs.

Speaking about the finalists Caroline Gumble, Chief Executive of the CIOB said: “This selection of photographs explores the remarkable creativity and variation of the built world, its power to affect our lives and its importance in our cultures.  The range is spectacular, and we congratulate all the finalists.”

There are two prizes on offer this year. The Judges Award receives a £1500 cash prize and the Public Choice Award which also receives a £1500 cash prize.
