One Photo Challenge 2022

About Competition

In the modern age, everyone carries an incredible camera in their pocket, and has the ability to snap an incredible architectural photograph at any moment. As a result, we are served up millions of extraordinary images every day on Instagram, Facebook, Tiktok and beyond. This provides a visual feast, but it can also be overwhelming. 

In an ocean of images, it takes a special image to make us stop, take a moment, and truly appreciate the unique place that it depicts. What kind of photograph can capture the true essence of a piece of architecture? What can it tell us about the people that live, work and play within it? Can a photograph tell us a larger story about the cultural context of a home, city or country?

This is the One Photo Challenge: Can you create a single photo that tells a compelling story about architecture, its inhabitants and our wider world?

Submit one photograph that powerfully communicates an architectural form or space, capturing the essence of the place and the experience of those that inhabit it. It can be located anywhere in the world and be at any scale. It can be taken from a wide angle or close up, show a whole building or just a detail, and be located anywhere in the world. As long as your photo portrays part or all of a building or group of buildings, it is eligible. This should be accompanied by a short description of your photograph, no more than 150 words.

This year, special attention will be given to photographs depicting architecture that is intrinsically tied to our shared place and time — the world in 2022. Images that encapsulate the atmosphere and emotion of a particular place, through the lens of architecture, are most likely to be rewarded.
