Get snapping for Gold Coast Open House! The event will again host its popular Focus on Architecture Photography Competition, sponsored this year by Griffith University.

Photographers of all ages are invited to pack cameras, visit buildings, places and spaces that join this year’s program and get snapping for the chance to share $1,500 in prizes. The competition is open to anyone who has an interest in architecture and design and a passion and flair for photography but remember, your entries must be taken on the day of the event – Saturday 19 October 2019.

Winners will be chosen by a panel of judges made up of Gold Coast Open House committee members and representatives of Griffith University. Snaps can be taken indoors or out. Judges consider creativity, photo quality and architectural significance when selecting the winners.

Submit your entries to Instagram or Facebook before 5pm on Wednesday 23 October. Juniors, primary and secondary school students (17 years and under) should hashtag their photos #gcoh19 and #gcoh19jnr. Those entering the open photography section should hashtag their photos #gcoh19 and #gcoh19open

Entries in the Focus on Architecture Photography Competition will be open via Instagram in two categories, Junior (primary and secondary students) and Open.

To enter your photos of Gold Coast Open House buildings, upload them and tag #gcoh19 plus the category you are entering:#gcoh19open or #gcoh19jnr.
