‘My Favourite Place’ Photography Competition

The Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland are running a photographic competition for young people in Summer 2016 to celebrate the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design. There will be two classes, one for those aged 15 and under, and one for those aged 16 to 24. The competition aims to encourage young people to engage with the built heritage around them, as all entries must feature a whole, or elements of, a building.


The first prize for each class will comprise:

  • £100
  • A framed version of their photo
  • An hour’s photographic tuition with Allan Wright
  • Display of the photos on the web, at exhibitions throughout D&G including at The Mill on the Fleet and in the AHSS national magazine

The second prizes will be £50 and exhibition, and the third prizes £25 and exhibition.


All entries and enquiries must be emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Entries should be submitted as a JPEG file.
Entries will be judged on the quality of the photograph and on a 100 word statement of why the entrant likes the building.
The judges will be Allan Wright (Photographer) and Martin Robertson (Architectural Historian).
Each entrant may submit up to three photographs, each with a 100 word appreciation statement. The photos must be their own work and taken during 2016.

Entries will be accepted between 1 June 2016 and 30 September 2016. Winners will be announced on 1 November 2016.
