Shoot the Architect was a competition open to all professional photographers in Queensland. The goal was to shoot a skilful, imaginative portrait of a Queensland-based architect. An exhibition of the 2011 finalists was held at the Queensland Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects in South Brisbane on 25 November, where the announcement of the winning image – Richards & Spence by photographer Roger D’Souza – was made. Highly commended entries were After Hours Architecture by Phoebe Hart, Point of View by Scott Burrows, Portrait of an Architect Callan Bennett by Agnieszka Davis and Portrait of Julie Bonfield; sense by Agnieszka Davis.
