Y/OUR Denver Photography Competition on view virtually through March 1

Posted

The digital exhibition of the 2020 Y/OUR Denver Photography Competition is available for viewing through March 1.

It is available on the following websites: Denver Architecture Foundation, www.denverarchitecture.org; and Colorado Photographic Arts Center, www.cpacphoto.org.

The exhibit consists of 30 photographs, all by local photographers of varying skill levels, that depict Denver’s “vast and unique architecture” and includes “all forms of architectural imagery — black and white, color, exterior, interiors and detail images,” states a news release.

Put on by the nonprofits Denver Architecture Foundation and the Colorado Photographic Arts Center, Y/OUR Denver Photography Competition is a corresponding event to the Denver Architecture Foundation’s annual Doors Open Denver. Doors Open Denver is an event during which the general public can access a variety of the city’s unique spaces. This year, the 16th annual Doors Open Denver, took place virtually Sept. 28-Oct. 15.

This is the third year for the Y/OUR Denver Photography Competition, and 225 entries were submitted to the competition. The 30 finalists part of the exhibition were juried by Samantha Johnston, executive director and curator of the Colorado Photographic Arts Center.

The four competition winners are:

• Best in Show: Crossed Paths by Scott Wilson

• Best Exterior: Reconstruction of Denver Art Museum by Faina Gurevich

• Best Interior: Belly of the Cathedral by Edward Huang

• Best Detail: Denver Series #72 by Rodney Gene Mahaffey

“In a time when we are practicing safe social distancing and finding ourselves at home more than usual,” Pauline Herrera, executive director of the Denver Architecture Foundation, said in a news release, “our community can enjoy the beauty of Denver remotely through the Y/OUR Denver digital exhibition.”
