We are excited to announce the winner of the third annual ‘Photographer of the Year’ competition, in partnership with the West Midlands Photography Collective.
The competition saw over 280 entries, from 114 photographers in just two weeks, with the West Midlands Photography Collective selecting a shortlist of ten, which were then ultimately judged by the architect behind The Cube, Ken Shuttleworth.
The winner, Mohammed Ali, photographed The Cube atrium through a glass sphere, allowing for a never before seen perspective (pictured left). For winning, Mohammed Ali will hold the title of ‘The Cube Photographer of the Year 2018’, as well as receive a trophy and meal for four at Bardolino on level six of The Cube.
Doug Wattleworth, senior building manager at The Cube, said: “The standard of entries this year was incredibly high, with each photograph showing a unique angle of The Cube. As always, the way in which each photographer interpreted the competition was outstanding, making the judging process extremely difficult.”
Architect of The Cube, Ken Shuttleworth, said: “We always enjoy seeing our buildings from new and imaginative angles and this perfectly captures the spirit of the twisting nature of The Cube’s centre. The interior was very much conceived as a more delicate and fractal geometry as compared to the strong, bold exterior, and this beautifully encapsulates this concept.”
