MAF Announces Return of Architecture Inspires! Photo Contest
Deadline Extended to Sept. 15!


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 “Architecture Inspires” photography competition!

By popular demand, this year’s contest deadline has been extended to September 15!

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. 

Judges will award winners for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes as follows:

  • FIRST PRIZE: $1,000
  • SECOND PRIZE: $750
  • THIRD PRIZE: $500

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

The entry fee is $10 per photographer. Each photographer can enter up to 10 photos for the single fee, as long as they work within the rules of the competition. All submissions must be uploaded online to the MAF website by 5:00 P.M. on Thursday, September 15th, 2022. Click here for more information.
