RIBA photography competition
Overall winner announced and postcard set of 10 now on sale

The RIBA launched its first photography competition in May, “Celebrating Architecture 2012”, looking for images that captured different interpretations of architecture in 2012 – the inspiring, the beautiful, the intriguing or even the bizarre!

Over 90 entries were received and judged by a panel that included Morley von Sternberg, professional photographer and Angela Brady, RIBA President and Jonathan Makepeace, RIBApix.

Ten images were selected as winners and the overall winner was announced by Angela Brady, at the RIBA Education Fundraising Dinner on the 28 June.

All proceeds from the sale of the cards will go directly to our RIBA Education Fund, a registered charity that makes grants to students of architecture in the UK experiencing financial hardship.
