Photo Exhibit
The ABX Photo Exhibit is a high-quality display that celebrates New England architecture, landscape architecture, and interior design. It promotes New England design practitioners to prospective collaborators and clients of all types. The selection committee seeks a diverse representation of design firms, project types, project sizes, and locations. Selected photos will be exhibited in a custom display from November 8–9, 2017 at the ABX/Greenbuild exhibit hall.

Submissions will be accepted July 12–August 23, 2017

All submissions must come from firms headquartered in, or individuals registered in one of the six New England states. However, the project location may be from anywhere.

Each firm may submit up to six images total, but only up to four images per category with the appropriate fees for each. For example, you may submit four Architecture photos + two Interior Design photos, but not six Architecture photos. (Categories are based on the composition of the photo and not by the type of firm submitting the images)

Submissions must fall into one of the following three categories: Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Interior Design. Submitted images may be of a single building or project, a complex of buildings, urban design projects, a project detail, or something along those lines. Entries are limited to one image per project. However, a second entry of a project will be considered only if it shows a substantially different aspect, such as an interior vs. exterior shot of the project. Photo collages are not accepted.

*Any Unbuilt submissions may only be of projects that are either currently in progress or will commence within the next year (2018). The renderings or photographs of models must comply with all other submission requirements.

Please choose your submissions carefully as they are a representation of your work and will be seen by all who attend ABX.

Entry Fees
Each submission must be accompanied by payment via credit card or check/money-order made payable to the “Boston Society of Architects/AIA.” BSA Member fees are $125 per image and Non-Member fees are $250 per image. Submissions will not be considered if check payment is not received in full by August 25, 2017.

For submitting firms to qualify for member pricing, the firm itself must be either an Architectural Firm Member or a Corporate Affiliate Member of the BSA. The employment of a BSA/AIA individual member does not qualify the firm for member pricing within the ABX Photo Exhibit.

*If the selection committee chooses not to include your project image in the exhibition, the fee for that submission will be refunded to you, minus a $15 processing fee (per non-selected image).

Submissions fulfilling all requirements are due by 5:00 pm on Wednesday, August 23, 2017.

*Any late submissions will be waitlisted and will not be included in the selection process. These submissions will be given to the selection committee only in the event that a spot opens up.

All submitters will be notified by email prior to the show on whether their photo(s) were among this year’s chosen group.
