The Architectural Photography Awards has unveiled its 2021 shortlist. For the first time, Iran was on the list of countries that entered alongside the UK, the USA, China, Germany and Canada, just to name a few. Nearly 2000 entries were submitted into six categories: Exterior, Interior, Sense of Place, Buildings in Use, Mobile (with the theme of greening) and Portfolio (with the theme of Buildings with History).

The panel of judges were asked to look beyond the architecture and consider other elements such as composition, use of scale and the photographer's sensitivity to the mood of an image. This year, the judge's panel consisted of leading architecture and photography professionals including Richard Bryans, Hamish Crooks, Laurian Ghinitoiu, Chloe Grimshaw, Katy Harris and Marco Iuliano.
