#Architecture Photo Contest

From skyscrapers to humble gas stations, architecture shows us the soul of cities. Some buildings have hosted famous events, some are incredible creations by famous architects, and some bring ancient history into the modern age.

All around us, architecture defines our cities.

From March 4th to 18th, we are hosting an #architecture photo contest. Show us photos of stunning buildings from all around the world and tell us their stories.

Upload an original architectural photo, like this one by Brendan van Son, and you could win $1500.

It’s easy to enter:

1) Upload an original photo of an impressive piece of architecture (skyscrapers, cathedrals, monuments, etc.) to Trover.

2) Write a couple of lines about its architectural history or story. Include any travel tips you may have for visitors and your general impressions.

3) Include “#architecture” in the details field.

4) Voilà–you’re entered to win $1500!

This contest is a sweepstakes. The more architecture photos you upload, the better your chances of winning. Contest ends at 11:59 p.m. PST on March 18.

Already posted your architectural shots to Trover? That’s great! Just edit your photo to include “#architecture” in the description, and they’ll be entered for the contest.
