Free to enter, the CBRE Urban Photographer of the Year competition challenges you to change our perceptions of day to day life in the urban environment through our brief: ‘Cities at Work’. The winner will receive a luxury photo-safari trip from a choice of destinations around the globe.
The Urban Photographer of the Year will be the person who, in the eyes of the judges, has best captured the brief to portray the life of a town or city at a given time of day. Whilst the photograph does not necessarily have to be taken at that specific time of day, it does need to look as though it was.
You can choose to photograph any town or city at work worldwide. For example, a photograph could capture London at 4am, Lisbon at 2pm, Dubai at 9pm and so on.
When you submit your photographs you will be asked to select which hour of the day each represents – this will place each in an hourly prize category. Please note, you can only submit one photograph for each hour of the day.
