URBAN PHOTO COMPETITION
The Royal Photographic Society, Urban Photo Fest (UPF), now in its second year, is a festival of events taking place with international contributors and partners throughout London involving photographers, artists, filmmakers, urban researchers and anyone with an interest in the representation and evocation of urban life. This year’s theme is Urban Materiality, a concept embracing the physical fabric of the urban environment.
Urban materiality is about the ‘stuff’ we find in urban spaces – and it’s everywhere. It can be architecture or the surfaces of buildings, objects deposited in the street, things that draw our attention away from everyday consciousness and are visually interesting. There is a truly breath-taking range of stuff out there, some of which can be explained – they have what archaeologists call ‘biographies’ – and things that resist explanation and remain a mystery.
Although all the festival events are being held in London, the competition images can be taken in any urban environment worldwide.
Each individual may submit one image for each category of the competition, (a total maximum of 4 images). The categories are; • Abstraction • Architecture • Environment • Object
