Submit your great images to the ASMP Exhibition at the AIA Convention. The exhibit is in a highly trafficked exhibit space on the convention floor, where an audience of 25,000+ attendees — architects, interior designers, engineers, builders, editors, scholars and manufacturers — can view them during the course of the three-day convention.


The 2015 AIA Convention is being held in Atlanta, GA, from May 14 to May 16. The theme of the 2015 show is Impact, focusing on how architects impact their communities both locally and globally.


Key facts

Any ASMP member in good standing is eligible.

Each selected photographer is asked to pay for the printing and mounting of his/her images — approximately $55/image — which is paid directly to the lab. Please do not enter if you are not willing to pay for your entry.


Selection process

Images created via any form of photography will be accepted for consideration, whether traditional or digital media. Images may either be commercial or from a personal project.


The jury is comprised of three judges: Susan Proper, Director, AIA, Atlanta Chapter; Manuel Cadrecha, Design Director, Perkins + Will; and Judy Herrmann, Director of Content Strategy, ASMP. All images will be reviewed via a web gallery and each judge will select 25 images. The 20 images with the most votes will be chosen for the exhibit.


The jury will announce its decisions by March 16. Photographers selected will be contacted by email with detailed instructions on where to send high-res files for printing.


The twenty chosen images will be printed approximately 24x30 inches in size. PPRpix in Atlanta will print the images and do the mounting.

What do you mean, “award winning”?

We are asking that images outside the Atlanta, GA area must have won some kind of design award from 2013-2015. Design awards can be those sponsored by the AIA or any other organization in the design/architecture field, including those for green design, brick or other material-related awards, lighting design, historic preservation, editorial/magazine awards, etc. Please list the award that was won with your submission.


Images within the greater Atlanta area need not feature award-winning designs. Rather, they should be fresh interpretations of iconic structures in the metropolitan area, or interesting presentations of the less-known parts of Atlanta.


Use of images

All entrants agree that any photograph they submit may be used for marketing and promotional purposes directly related to the ASMP AIA/Atlanta, GA show. This use may include a show announcement, a multimedia display at the ASMP booth at the 2015 Atlanta Convention, publication in the ASMP Bulletin, the ASMP web site and /or other related uses in conjunction with the ASMP AIA/Atlanta, GA show. Any photograph used by ASMP AIA/Atlanta show shall carry a credit line for the photographer. Copyright and all other rights remain that of the photographer.


Insurance for prints

Neither ASMP nor AIA carries insurance for loss or damage to artwork in the gallery or in return transit and neither entity assumes any liability for it. The normal precautions will be taken for the safety of the exhibited artwork. After the show, prints will be shipped to the ASMP office in Philadelphia, where they can be stored for a few weeks, but not indefinitely. Artists may request that their prints be shipped to them. However, ASMP recommends that artists should provide their own shipping and insurance coverage for their work if they would like the print to be returned to them after the show.
