@lloydsoflondon Open House London Competition! #lloydscomp.
Lloyd’s is launching a photography competition aimed at capturing the perfect pic of our world-famous building in London.
Designed by architect Richard Rogers, the Lloyd’s building took more than eight years to build. In all, 33,510 cubic meters of concrete, 30,000 square metres of stainless steel cladding and 12,000 square metres of glass were used during the construction.
On 22 September 2012, we will be flinging open our doors to the public as part of Open House London weekend – an architectural festival where buildings across the capital welcome visitors from all over the globe to get a glimpse inside.
Last year, more than 6,000 guests strolled through Lloyd’s taking in the Adam Room, Nelson Collection and riding in our famous glass lifts.
This year, we want to capture those memories and are challenging visitors to upload their best pictures of the building via Instagram.
Already loved by Instagramers, the Lloyd’s building has long been a popular subject of photographs and Open House is the perfect opportunity to get your photo seen.
Up for grabs is beautiful book on architecture signed by Lord Rogers - who also designed the Pompidou Centre in Paris and the Millennium Dome in London. Your picture will also feature as Lloyd’s Facebook profile picture until the end of the year.
1. Follow @lloydsoflondon on Instagram.
2. Submit your photo of Lloyd’s building. Tag @lloydsoflondon and #lloydscomp.
3. Tell us why yours is a winning photo in the caption.
Photographs will be judged on subject, composition and originality.
Closing date is 30 Sept 2012. Winners will be announced on 12 October 2012.
Good luck! (Taken with Instagram at Lloyd’s of London)
