I LOVE ARCHITECTURE is the motto for the Az W Photo Awards, on the occasion of the exhibition „The End of Architecture. The Last 50 Years“ (06.10.2016 – 20.03.2017). The Az W Photo Award is focusing on architecture: We are looking for images of locations built in the last 50 years. Show us architecture that arouses your interest, captures attention and exudes fascination. Send us a photo of your favourite motif, and win an Eames Plastic Chair by Vitra!

Deadline for entries: Wed 31.08.2016
Full terms and conditions, and entry forms at:

In September 2016 a jury of experts is making a selection from all of the submissions, of one winning image and nine honorary mentions. The photos are on display at the Az W for three weeks following the prize-giving ceremony on Tuesday 18.10.2016. First prize is an Eames Plastic Chair by Vitra.

From 10.09 – 10.10.2016 there is also a public vote on Facebook. The photo with the most "Likes" is to be displayed on all of the INFOSCREENs in the country, and so presented to an audience of millions. This digital medium informs and entertains over 1.4 million viewers in five of the Austrian state capitals every week.
