“Fang din by” (Capture your city) is back! 

The Danish Architecture Center is collaborating again with Copenhagen Photo Festival for their photo contest open to everyone with a camera or a phone. Do not miss your chance to participate! 


Fang din by (Capture Your City), 2023 edition

This year’s theme is “No Filter”. You can of course use a filter or edit your image but the idea is to capture the purest aspect of your city. What does the city look like if you strip away the sunshine and sunsets? If we look at the city through honest eyes – what other types of motifs crop up? The challenge is to avoid picturesque shots and capture the beauty of the raw, the unpolished, the abandoned in your city. 

The best photos will be exhibited on the Bryghuspladsen square outside the Danish Architecture Center, as well as in other cities. 3 winners will be designated by the jury formed by Maja Dyrehauge Gregersen, Copenhagen Photo Festival director; Emile Hertling Péronard, film producer; Marie Hald, photographer; Mia Heil Rasmussen, head of Marketing and Communication DAC and Tanja Zhigalova; winner of last year’s edition.
