Titled An Open and Shut case, it's the latest digital photography competition put on by the New Zealand Institute of Architects Western Branch. It has a $500 prize, and it's free to enter.

Photographers can email a maximum of two images to, convenor Duncan Sinclair says. Each must be sent separately.


The images will be judged on photographic interpretation of an architectural feature.
