Eligibility and Rules

The Architizer One Photo Challenge is open to all individuals and teams involved and interested in architecture, design, planning and construction. The One Photo Challenge is an international awards program and participants of all nationalities are welcome. There is no limit to the number of entries that may be submitted by any entrant. A completed online entry form and fee must accompany each entry

Unacceptable Material

Entries that contain pornographic material, propagate “hate” messages, make defamatory statements or which are otherwise extraordinarily offensive are not eligible.

Minor edits to photographs — for example, to lighten, darken, increase sharpness or clarity, tweak colors slightly, or reduce distortion — are permitted. Photo collages are not permitted, but photographic panoramas are acceptable (multiple images stitched together to form one, continuous photograph of a scene). Wholesale digital manipulation that fundamentally changes the nature of a photograph is not permitted. If you are unsure if your photograph is eligible, please email us at competitions@architizer.com and we'll be glad to help.

Architizer will use its discretion to moderate images and has the final say on eligibility.


Ineligible entries may be disqualified at any phase of the competition without notification.
