Architecture Inspires!
MAF Photo Contest Is Live!


The 2022 contest is now live!

Do you love taking photos of Michigan architecture as much as we do? Want the chance to see your photos (and photo credit) featured on MAF’s website and social media? What about the opportunity to win some prize money too? MAF is proud to announce the return of its popular photography competition, “Architecture Inspires”. The 2022 contest opens Wednesday, April 6.

MAF invites and challenges anyone with a camera to show how ‘architecture does it’ to motivate, inspire, and connect with people. We are looking for those one-of-a-kind inspirational images showing a unique relationship between people and buildings, and which demonstrate how architecture enriches life. All photos must contain some representation of architecture and people from places in Michigan.

Don’t have professional photography equipment? No worries! Use your cell phone camera and your love of architecture to capture the winning image.

Judges will award winners for prizes, as follows:

1st PRIZE:         $1,000

2nd PRIZE:       $750

3rd PRIZE:       $500


The entry fee is $10 per photographer. Each photographer can enter as many photos as they want for the flat fee, as long as they work within the rules for the competition.

Additional details, including contest deadline, to follow. Watch your email inbox, and MAF’s website and social media for additional details on April 6!
