29/11/14 | The photographs of Marisol Herreros, Laura Agustí and Roger Vall have been chosen as the best images from among the 450 photographs that were presented.

Arkiromantix (@arkiromantix) is a movement created in Denver, and its aims is to discover a different way of looking at architecture using the application Instagram. With this goal in mind, on 1 November, 40 instagrammers from Girona and Barcelona took part in the 1st Architecture InstaWalk in Girona, following two routes around the city's emblematic buildings guided by local architects.
This first Architecture InstaWalk in Girona, which formed part of the Sant Narcís Fair events, is organised by Girona City Council (@girona_cat) and Arkiromantix Barcelona (@arkiromantix_barcelona), with the collaboration of the Girona Costa Brava Tourism Board (@costabrava), Igers Girona (@igersgirona), Igers Barcelona (@igersbcn), the Girona Hotel and Catering Association (@destigirona) and the Girona Architects' Association.
Marisol Herreros (@marisolherreros) was awarded first prize in this first "Arkiromantix Girona" event.

From the 450 photographs that were presented, the winning image is of the headquarters of the Generalitat de Catalunya in Girona. Second prize went to Laura Agustí (@laura_agusti) and her photograph of the façade of Girona's courthouse. Third prize was won by Roger Vall (@rvall3) with an image of the façade of the apartment block at number 14 Avinguda Josep Tarradellas.
