Norfolk Association of Architects (NAA) is holding the photography competition in the lead up to October's Festival of Architecture in Norwich and Norfolk (FANN17) celebrations, in partnership with Archant's iWitness24.

Jerene Irwin, NAA president, said: 'Norfolk, like all places is made up of many layers of memories and this is translated into our built environment.

'Memories play a significant role in how we engage and interact with our towns and cities and understanding the 'memory' of a place is fundamental to understanding architecture.

'Sometimes it's the smallest detail of a building, sometimes its how a landscape frames a view or how the building is designed. We're very excited to see how this theme is interpreted by Norfolk's photographers and what memory means to them.'
