Photography competition to celebrate Open House London weekend

 5th Sep 2010

Open-HouseA photography competition to celebrate the upcoming Open House London Weekend has been launched by The Architects’ Journal and Open City.

Private houses, offices and other architectural treasures across the capital will open their doors to the public on 18-19 September, allowing people to get a glimpse inside some of the city's most impressive buildings.

The annual event includes more than 700 buildings, neighbourhood walks, architects' talks and cycle tours all over London, from major landmarks such as BT Tower, to small private homes. Entry is completely free.

To celebrate Open House London, a photography competition has been launched and amateur photographers, architects and architecture fans are invited to submit their shots.

The two categories are ‘architectural details’ and ‘design that makes a difference’. Entries will be judged by an expert panel including AJ art editor Brad Yendle and architectural photographer Ed Reeve.

The winners in each category will receive a mounted print of their photo, plus the opportunity for their work to be featured in the Architectural Journal and in Open House promotional material. They will also receive a selection of architectural books.
