2021 Project of the Year Award Longlist (Part One)

2021 Project of the Year Award Longlist (Part One)

APA Awards Competitions News

Project of the Year might just be one of our favorite categories. In this day and age where everyone is a photographer, it seems like anybody can take a good photograph. What separates the masters from the just-plain-lucky though, is the ability to create consistent beautiful images over and over again. APALMANAC’s 2021 Project of the Year Award is for architectural and interior photographers who are making amazing image after image, and can demonstrate that skill in an individual project.

The entries for Project of the Year were mesmerizing. After pouring through all of the submissions and their descriptions, here are the longlisted selections for the 2021 Project of the Year.

There are a massive amount of photos at hand here, and I can hear your internet speed grinding to a halt already. To show you the projects as submitted in their entirety, we’ve decided to break this list into two parts. Here is the first half:
