Photo Contest on Architectural Heritage

Photo Contest on Architectural Heritage

The Islamic Architecture Center at the Art Bureau (Howze Honari) of the Islamic Development Organization in Tehran is organizing a photo contest on heritage in architecture titled ‘Identification in Architecture.’
Considering the significant role of architecture in reflecting a community’s culture, an exploration into architectural heritage is necessary, says the website of the center, www.irac.ir.
Architecture is an objective manifestation of culture and thought. It represents the spiritual and religious values of nations. It should be in accord with the culture and identity of the community. “The competition is a critical appraisal of contemporary urban architecture in Iranian cities,” the website said. 
“Unfortunately, the so-called contemporary architecture is a series of lifeless, undecided spaces, used only as shelter, built regardless of residents’ interests and sentiments.”
The photo contest is open to all enthusiasts. Each one can submit a maximum of 10 photographs to the center’s secretariat by April 6, located at No. 7, Loqman Street, Felestin (Palestine) Street, South of Jomhouri Avenue.
The event’s juries are architect Farhad Ahmdi, 66, photographer Saeed Mahmoudi Aznaveh, 49, and Ali Forouzanfar, head of the Islamic Architecture Center. They will judge the works until April 20.
An exhibition of selected photographs will be held from April 23-27. Winners will be announced at the closing ceremony of the competition, slated for April 27. A diploma of honor will be granted to each of the three winners.  
The top winner will receive 50 million rials ($1,310). Cash awards will also be given to the two other winners.
