2019 Harry Page Photo Competition Open

The 7th Harry Page Memorial Photography Competition is now open for entries.

The competition was established in 2013 in memory of Harry Page, a passionate photographer and a keen C20 member.

This popular competition is open to C20 members only (join here).

We are looking for architectural black and white or colour pictures of a particular detail, elevation or whole building whose construction was completed from 1914 onwards.

A maximum of 10 entries per member is allowed.

Last year the award was won by Martin Gardner, with two images of recent buildings (both completed in 2016): The Quest, in Swanage by StrÅ‘m Architects, and The World Trade Centre Transportation Hub in New York (pictured above).

The closing date for entries this year is Friday 27th December at midnight and the trophy will be presented to the winner during a C20 event at Cowcross Street in London in early 2020.
