Sometimes it seems like constructing a building was a very boring job. Row after row of identical features, or even complete buildings stretching off into the distance. This might have been a boring few months for the builders, but it presents a wonderful opportunity to the photographer.

I'd love to see your best photos of repetition in architecture. The repetition can be small scale such as brickwork, tiles or window panes; or it can be large scale such as a row of terraced houses, symmetric buttresses, or even whole skyscrapers. Modern and ancient architecture are welcome. The repetitive unit doesn't need to be identical, but there should be enough to give a clear impression of a pattern.

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.
