CIOB invites the public to choose the Art of Building Photographer of the Year

Published

3rd December 2018

The built environment’s most amazing and poignant stories are revealed today as the Art of Building’s top 12 shots to have made it through to the final are announced.

Amongst the shortlist appears a home built from old televisions, a skyscraper still under construction and yet soaring above the clouds, and an 18th century palace in Naples which has conserved a staircase that mimics the graceful curves of two swans.

The competition, run by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), now enters its final stage as the public vote for their favourite shot after judges sifted through thousands of entries. 12 shortlisted images have made their way past the scrutiny of the judging panel which included professional photographers, editors and communicators.

The photograph with the most votes will earn that finalist the coveted title of ‘Art of Building Photographer of the Year’ and a cash prize of £3,500. 

“There is a cornucopia of styles and stories in this year’s final,” commented Saul Townsend, CIOB spokesman. “In a world full of high definition colour technology it is how the photographer observes the subject that moves us. Voters are in for a visual treat and we hope will be inspired to look at the built environment in a new way and to take part themselves next year. Congratulations to all the finalists.”

Now in its ninth year, the contest celebrates creativity in the construction industry.  The voting opens on 3 December 2018 and closes on 11 January 2019. The winner is announced on 30 January 2019.
