The Photography Competition Theme was 
”100 great buildings, from the obvious to the overlooked.” This year’s theme was all about taking a view on the buildings in the OHD programme, there was an incredible selection of buildings to choose from. All photos entered had to be of buildings in the OHD 2013 programme, which represents a diversity of building types from commercial to cultural to domestic to fashion to government. With up to 60% of the venues new to the programme, each one offered a unique insight into Dublin’s architectural story. Competition Criteria: creativity, quality of photograph and relevance to the theme.
