Some of the best architectural photography has come to the fore in a competition open to photographers worldwide

The photos were shortlisted in the Arcaid Images Architectural Photography Awards 2015, which asked photographers to submit pictures in four categories: Exteriors, Interiors, Sense of Place and Buildings in Use.

Organisers said: ‘During the process each judge was asked to look beyond the architecture itself, considering the photographers’ merits, composition, sense of place, atmosphere and use of scale.’

The shortlisted entries will be exhibited at the World Architecture Festival in Singapore from 4-6 November, when the overall winner will be announced.

All the winning shots are due to go on show at Sto Werkstatt gallery in London early next year.

Christine Murray, editor of The Architectural Review and one of the judges, said: ‘I believe architectural photography should not be solely focussed on the building, but give you a wider sense of context.

‘Like the photographs in old issues of National Geographic, I want to experience this place and its people. I want to feel like I’ve travelled.’
