AIA Northern Virginia
2019 AIA National Photography Competition
Posted Wednesday, April 3

The 2019 AIA National Photography Competition© was founded to promote appreciation and awareness of the built environment as captured in images by architects. The competition, organized by AIA St. Louis, is open to all AIA and AIAS members and architects registered in the United States.

The entries must have an architectural theme or must contain some element of the man-made environment. The jury will use the photographic interpretation of the subject matter as their main criteria for judging, not the architecture itself.

A total of fourteen images are selected to be honored for display at A’19 Conference on Architecture in Las Vegas and made into note cards in 2020. Cash awards are given for First Place, $500; Second Place, $400; Third Place, $300; and for the Fuller Award (must be of American architecture; Al Fuller was the founder of the competition).
Entry fees: AIAS members $15; Associate AIA members $30; AIA members $35; non-member architects $70. Entrants may submit up to five slides for each entry fee and may enter as many times as desired.

Entries are due April 15, 2019. To learn more, submit online or download entry form, visit
