OHNY Weekend Photo Competition

Open House New York and Wikimedia NYC invite you to submit your best OHNY Weekend photos to our photo competition on Wikimedia Commons!

More than 1,000 photos taken during OHNY Weekend are submitted to the photo competition each year. Submissions are judged in one of three categories – Interiors, Exteriors, and Details – for a chance to win prizes. All submitted photographs also become part of Wikimedia Commons, the online repository of free-use, public domain images that are used across Wikimedia—including as illustrations for Wikipedia articles. Nearly 200 photos from OHNY Weekend are already being used to illustrate articles across the world, from the entry on “rusty” in Polish, to “light fixture” in Estonian, to “nostalgia” in Bengali!

In addition, submissions to the 2017 competition will also be considered for publication in a forthcoming book of photographs, published by Open House New York in celebration of the 15th anniversary of OHNY Weekend! 

Submissions will be accepted starting on October 14 and through Sunday, October 22 at 11:59 pm, and winners will be announced in late-November.
