Arcaid Images is a photographic resource representing images from all aspects of the built world, ancient and modern, iconic and ordinary. Our contributors, photographers and institutions are global. Arcaid's founder photographer, Richard Bryant trained as an architect which puts our roots squarely in contemporary architecture. The experience of architecture for the majority of people is via images. The architecture itself is the focus and the image regarded only as the medium.
The Arcaid Images Architectural Photography Award aims to put the focus onto the skill and creativity of the photographer. We ask the judges and the viewers to look beyond the architecture to the composition, light, scale, atmosphere, sense of place and understanding of the project.
The shortlist photographs will be exhibited at the World Architecture Festival in Singapore, 1-3 October 2014. The overall winner will be announced by Paul Finch at the Gala Dinner.
