Art of Building contest to support Haiti school project

The Chartered Institute of Building has today announced that its annual Art of Building international digital photography competition is now open for entry. The contest will raise much-needed funds for a major project to build hurricane and earthquake resilient schools in Haiti, organised by development and disaster relief organisation, Article 25.

Applicants from around the world explore and capture the art of building, then submit their photograph to the Art of Building competition website. The winner will scoop a prize of £2,000 and will be chosen by public vote from 12 finalists. The photographs will then be auctioned to raise funds for the Haiti initiative.

The standard of the construction hit by an earthquake directly affects the casualty rate. As Robin Cross, chief executive at Article 25 explains: “Earthquakes don’t kill people… buildings do.” CIOB Art of Building manager, Saul Townsend, added: “The Article 25 initiative aims to return Haitian children to safe schools and set a blueprint for future school buildings throughout the country. By taking part in the competition, this year’s entrants could find their photography and vision being used to touch someone else’s life.”

Entries to the competition will be split into four categories: Building Inspiration, Between People and Buildings, Creative Visions and Young Photographer of the Year.
