The theme for the National Arts Club juried exhibition this May focuses on urban architecture.

This show will celebrate the feats of architecture and engineering, not the urban skyline. Chosen photographs must portray exclusively the exterior of an individual structure, be it a townhouse, skyscraper, house of worship, bridge or other structure that is made for urban habitation or transportation. Images might show a detail or the full façade.

Structures may represent designs of the current millennium or of distant ages.

Consider the sight of a structure newly emerging, in a state of dilapidation, in urban centers or in ancient communities.

Although you can include people incidentally in your photograph – they can offer a sense of scale – they cannot be the main element of the photograph.

Look for the myriad of ways in which city structures can enhance the work, recreation, and allegiances of cosmopolitan life.
