Every year OHNY holds its annual OHNY Focus on Architecture Photo Competition and welcomes OHNY Weekend visitors to submit their best images taken from one of the hundreds of sites & programs offered. This year photos were judged based on the following criteria.

The spirit of openhousenewyork focuses on collective urban exploration and a shared appreciation for the past and present of New York City’s built environment. With that in mind, we are looking for photos that:

  • are taken during OHNY Weekend (October 6 & 7, 2012) at a participating OHNY Weekend site or program
  • demonstrate the energy and excitement of exploring a new space, place or neighborhood
  • show not only architecture and design, but also your fellow explorers and participants at the OHNY site/program (including OHNY participants, volunteers, guides, etc.)

The panel of judges included Sean Hemmerle, Elliott Kaufman, Margaret Morton and Erica Stoller. Thank you to StreetEasy for hosting our judging session. Below, we are proud to announce the top 10 images selected by our esteemed judges.

This year OHNY is asking YOU to determine the final top three winners of the contest. Vote for your favorite image by visiting Facebook, scrolling through the album titled 2012 OHNY Focus on Architecture Finalists and clicking “like” on your favorites. Based on the most number of “likes” for each photo, OHNY will determine the top three winners. Prizes courtesy of New York City Photo Safari.
