The Bath Preservation Trust (BPT) is on the lookout for images of architecture for their annual photo competition “Architectural Photographer of the year”, and there are only a few weeks left to enter.
Categories for the annual competition include:
Architecture of Entertainment
From ancient amphitheatres to then multiplex cinema architects have designing entertainment spaces for thousands of years.
This year the BPT are setting a challenge for photographers to capture images of architecture, interior or exterior that have an entertainment theme, be it the Sydney opera house or the Theatre Royal.
Bath: After the Georgians
Most people who come to visit Bath are here to see the Georgian city. However, as the city has expanded and developed over the years, so too has its architecture.
Even within the centre you can find the odd 1960’s brutalist building and as you travel further out of the centre great examples of Victorian and Edwardian styles can be found. What can you find? What buildings old or new catch your eye?
Junior architectural photographer of the year
Open to photographers under the age of 19. BPT want to see what architecture inspires you? What do you prefer old buildings or ultra-modern? What’s the coolest building you’ve seen?
This year’s judges include:
- Jonathan Walker: MD of No15 Great Pulteney Street hotel. A photographer and collector of photographic works by the likes of David Bailey, Clive Arrowsmith and Andre Kertsz
- Benedict Brain ARPS: Writer for future publishing photo graphic magazines and assessor for RPS.
- Stephen Crisp: was the Chief Photographer in the Middle East for Reuters.
- Eleanor Young: Executive Editor for the RIBA journal.
The prizes available include a meal and stay at the luxury boutique hotel No.15 Great Pulteney, an acrylic print by DS colour labs and photography kit by K&F concepts.
Entries close on Saturday 30th November. Visit museumofbatharchitecture.org.uk for more info and how to enter.
