GDODDF Photography Competition
Architecture and our built environment help structure and give form to our sense of place. It is the buildings which populate our streets that anchor and store many of our experiences and stories for later, waiting to be rediscovered or found. In our festival photography competition, we invite you to share your encounters with sense of place. Your image should show the building or space in its wider context or environment, capturing not only its physicality but also the feelings or emotions you feel when you interact with or see this site. Through examination of your everyday environment and Glasgow through your eyes, we hope to see untold stories.
Select a building on a one of your favourite Glasgow streets.
Capture the building’s purpose and how it anchors or holds the street together.
You can focus on a specific detail or element of the building or approach it as a whole.
Can be a new or old building.
Think about how you can convey the building’s history.
In your caption - use up to 50 words to tell a us why this building adds to your sense of place in the city.
