The Official 2022 Architectural Photography Awards Early Career & Emerging Talent ShortlistAPA Awards News
Finally! The judges’ results are in and we’re ready to start sharing the finalists from the 2022 Architectural Photography Awards.
We’re shaking things up from last year’s awards. Instead of stringing things out and sharing a longlist, shortlist, and winners, we’ll be sharing a shortlist and then will have a separate announcement for this year’s winners, runners-up, and honorable mention places.
First up is our shortlist of the top 10 highest-scoring submissions in our 2022 Early Career and Emerging Talent category. Remember, the early career award was limited to photographers who have been shooting architecture for 5 years or less at the time of the contest. We asked photographers to submit 3 photographs that best represent them and their work. Somewhere in this alphabetically ordered list is our winner and runner-up, so check back next week for the final results. In the meantime, enjoy these beautiful photographs from our highest-scoring entries.
