We are very excited to release the theme of ARCHITECTURE for our latest competition!

Architecture as a concept is the designing and planning of both structure and space - the resistant material and the unused, or 'negative' space, to reflect functional, technical, social, environmental and especially, aesthetic considerations. It requires the creative manipulation and coordination of materials and technology, and of light and shadow.

We would like you to showcase the creative and artistic elements of Architecture in your images, with consideration given to space, ambiance, light, shadows, reflections, lines and curves.

Encapsulate the variations and wide range of possibilities, for example, consider the way a change in the lighting affects a structure or forms a completely new perspective.

Remember, photographing 'Architecture' has a huge variation of possibilities, giving you the freedom to play with capturing people in places, landmarks, landscapes, the exterior and interior of a structure, or just an element of it - a door, a window, a chimney.

We really hope you enjoy the exploration of this theme and we can't wait to see your entries!



With the quick-draw, top-loading Quick Escape 300, you could snap a clean portrait of ol' John Wayne (or Pistol Pete) himself before he even had time to cock his hammer. You're darn tootin'! With this crafty photo bag, you can sling it over your shoulder or wear it on your hip... so you're all set for some two-steppin' and long-neckin'! And don't you fret if you get caught in one o' them torrential downpours, neither. These bags are made from water-resistant and hard-wearing coated denim and they've got integrated rain covers built right into 'em.
