In this contest, I would like to see you capture architecture from the middle of the 20th century, roughly from 1945 to 1975. Architecture from this period is often known as the Mid-century Modern design movement, or "mid-mod". You can show the exterior or interior of buildings and other man-made structures from anywhere in the world from this period. I will be looking for photos showing striking examples of "mid-mod" architecture from the mid-20th century and particularly images that make creative use of shadow and light. Composition will be another key element taken into account during the judging.

Please include the location and details of the age of the building in your picture if you can. Pictures that omit these details and are not obviously mid-20th century architecture have a reduced chance of being selected for an award in my judging.

How it works

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.

Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
