Photography Competition

Photography enthusiasts will be pleased to hear that we’re running our Open House Cork Photography Competition again this year; the aim of which is to capture the rich diversity of the buildings featured in the OHC 2017 programme by offering a unique insight into Cork’s architectural story. There are plenty to choose from and each entrant can submit up to 3 photos.

Competition Criteria

Creativity, quality of photograph and relevance to the theme. The theme for this year’s event is ‘The Changing City’ and we hope through this to encourage discussion about how architecture in Cork relates to and evokes sentiments surrounding this theme. We see this as a great opportunity for the people of Cork to learn more about and experience the architectural diversity present throughout the city.
