Stunning Photos From The Shortlist Of The Architectural Photography Awards 2018
Since its inception in 2012, with the support of the World Architecture Festival and facade and interior system manufacturer STO SE & Co, The Architectural Photography Awards coverage has moved from local trade papers to global news media.
The Awards are inclusive of both the full time professional photographer and the keen amateur. Categories range from a portfolio of an individual building to a single abstract: with a professional camera or on a mobile phone.
Images of the built world are used directly and indirectly for promoting and advertising commercial, financial, automotive and travel industries; they are not confined to architecture and property development. Nevertheless, the skill of the people who can translate the sophistication of architecture into readable and understandable two dimensions, explain and extol the character, detail and environment of a building, remains overlooked. This Award crosses continents and sectors to raise awareness of the skill and patience needed in this specialist area of photography.
