CCP Photo Comp July - August 2023  This month's comp is closed please refer to current month's theme

This topic surrounds us all. All you have to do is look around and frame the perfect image. Simple right!

There is of course much more to Architecture and that’s what we want you to dig into.

Colour schemes the designers have thought about and the lines and shapes of basic structure of a building can be impressive but we are also interested in how these spaces make you feel, the atmosphere that the design and structure has created. How we humans use the architecture of space we hope is also a consideration you make.

Structures are designed to stand up so we hope your images do too..

Enjoy this experience to really look at the built world around you. We look forward to seeing the magic you capture.
