Anyone can enter the contest, the participants just have to submit a photograph of a building preferably favorite, local examples of architectural excellence with explanation why they like that. The participant needs to appear in the photograph with the building. And need to put a text that explains the development or scheme that they really love, and tell WAF why. It can be old, new, big or micro budget, but crucially the WAF wants to know why, for the participant, it is special.

The top 10 entries will be shortlisted based on the strength of the explanation stating why their scheme embodies architectural excellence. One lucky winner will then be decided by the members of WAF’s Facebook group.

Submission deadline: Friday 22nd October 2010.
