To celebrate the city's unique architecture, organisers of Doors Open Day and the Creative Mackintosh Festival invited amateur photographers to submit images of Glasgow landmarks for a competition and exhibition.
The winning photograph, depicting the 2011 museum building, designed by architect Zaha Hadid, was taken by Surajit Paul, from Glasgow.
Attending a reception for the 20 finalists at the Glasgow Art Club, Mr Paul said: "I was given a camera by my wife a couple of years ago and I have not entered a competition before.
"But I am a big fan of Zaha Hadid and I spent a long time getting this picture."
Second place went to Bobby Borland's photograph of Glasgow University, third was Chris Bonnington's City Chambers and fourth was Bill Crookston's Clyde Auditorium.
The winning entries will be hung in the arrivals hall at Glasgow Airport next month as a welcome to visitors to the city.
The list of 50 official landmarks feature Glasgow's best known buildings, from medieval times to the present, and include buildings by world-renowned father figure of the Glasgow Style, Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Prizes included nights in Glasgow hotels, flights to Barcelona with Jet2.com and VIP passes to Glasgow Airport's first-class lounge.
Susan Garnsworthy, Creative Mackintosh Festival organiser, said: "The standard of the photographs we rec-eived was extremely high and we were impressed with the work that was submitted.
"The photographs have now made a fabulous exhibition which we hope people will enjoy in Glasgow Art Club."
Around 150 people entered the competition, the best 20 of which are featured in an exhibition at Glasgow Art Club until the end of the month.
Thereafter the photographs will be on show at Glasgow Airport.
Francois Bourienne, commercial director at Glasgow Airport, said: "We are looking forward to exhibiting the work of the winning photo-graphers in our arrivals hall."
The 20 finalists' pictures can be viewed at Glasgow Art Club, in Bath Street, Glasgow, until October 28.
