Introducing the Architecture Photography MasterPrize (APMP)

This year, the organiser is excited to announce a brand new programme for architectural photography to honour the best photography of the built environment. The Architecture Photography MaterPrize (APMP) aims to celebrate the best in architectural photography across the globe. The award recognises outstanding work of photographers and their ability to capture and document architecture, interior design, and architectural details.

Benefits & recognition 

AMP 2021 winners will receive extensive media coverage, the AMP trophy, a certificate of achievement, a winner’s seal, a feature in the online gallery, and the Architecture of the Year book, among other benefits.

Judging process 

Entries will be assessed by a diverse jury panel of top industry professionals, made up of designers, architects, curators, photographers, and academics from around the world.

“The Architecture MasterPrize program draws some of the most creative and innovative works by the leading architects from all around the world. The award-winning works, ranging from the smallest interior spaces to the high-rise towers to the city designs, illustrate the design sensibilities and thoughts shaping our industry today and provide a view into the emerging trends that will shape the future of architecture. With the submission of so many outstanding works each year, judging the projects is difficult but also one of the most inspiring tasks,” said Lawrence Kim, Director of A+U LAB, professor at Pusan National University, and AMP Juror.
