Each year Open House New York invites budding and experienced photographers to enter the Focus on Architecture Photo Competition by submitting their best photos taken during OHNY Weekend. Photos were grouped four different categories: Details, Exteriors, Interiors, and People. Photos were submitted this year via Instagram; all images tagged on that platform with the #OHNYwknd hashtag were automatically entered into the competition.

The jury for 2014 included Dee Dunn (Dorothy Dunn Consulting), Penny Hardy (PS New York), Chris Payne (Christopher Payne Photography), and Dylan Thuras (Atlas Obscura). One grand prize winner, and one winner in each category was chosen. In addition, 3-4 photos in each category were also recognized with an Honorable Mention, determined by the number of votes from the panel of jurors. Prizes awarded to the winners included a Sony QX-10 Digital Camera and $100 vouchers for Photo Safaris, courtesy of New York City Photo Safari.

Many thanks to all the entrants and congratulations to the winning photographers!
