Silent auction of student photos raises over £2,000

The silent auctioning of images from ADP student photography competition ‘Bricks and Mortals’ has raised over £2,000 for the built environment charity, Article 25

Selected entries were exhibited at the CUBE in Manchester and the RIBA in London and visitors were invited to bid for their favourites.

The photographs were judged on how well they captured ‘the subtle interaction between people and the built environment.’

The judging panel included acclaimed architectural photographer Peter Cook, Article 25’s CEO Victoria Harris, and Robert Rummey of Rummey Design Associates. ADP partner, Roger FitzGerald, was also a judge, and commented: ‘We plan to run a similar event next year, and raise much more money for charity. The theme of Bricks and Mortals not only inspired the students to produce excellent images, but also relates perfectly to the work of Article 25.’

Winner Simon Johnson, a Part 2 student at the University of Edinburgh won a £1,000 commission to photograph an ADP building and £750 of Jessops vouchers for his photograph ‘Figure’.

Joanna Simpson’s ‘Cuban Life’ attracted the highest bid and all proceeds are being donated to Article 25 projects around the world, including: a new sustainable prototype rural school in eastern Sierra Leone being developed in partnership with Save the Children; a crèche for street children in Maputo, Mozambique; and a football ground for the communities and children around the town of Lalibela in Ethiopia.
