The ninth edition of the International URBAN photography awards competition, organised by Italian cultural association dotART together with media partner Photographers.it and Sprea Photography, is open for submissions.

URBAN 2018 is divided into two sections dedicated to Urban Photography, a theme that explores the contemporary through all forms of photography based in the urban fabric. The common denominator is the city, the urban environment and humanity that populates it. 

The first section is “Themed Photos” (7 thematic areas for single pictures: Street Photography, Architecture & Urban Geometries, Transport, Urban Art, People, Urban Animals, Creative Photography), the second is “Projects & Portfolios” where each participant can submit a series of images oriented to show his idea through photographs (projects, portfolios, photo-reportage, etc). 

Photographers can upload photos and projects on the upload form (please read the rules before uploading). 

Works must be submitted no later than May 31st, 2018 and will be selected by a prestigious Jury chaired by Tatsuo Suzuki, multi-award-winning Japanese street photographer with several international exhibits to his credit. 

As Jury President, Tatsuo Suzuki will choose and award URBAN 2018 Winner on October 27th 2018 during Trieste Photo Days, international photography festival organized by dotART. The festival, now in its fifth edition, has in URBAN his main “cultural container” and will host the awards ceremony, the final exhibition of the contest and a series of exhibitions, personal and collective, of the best photos and classified projects. 

Other than regular prizes, URBAN gives the chance to the best ranked photographers to enter its tour otravelling photo exhibitions, the real and tangible value of this contest. Since 2011, URBAN has setup exhibitions in Poland (Krakow, Łódź and Warsaw), Hungary (Budapest, Pécs and Miskolc), Germany (Berlin), Serbia (Beograd), Cyprus (Limassol, Paphos and Nicosia), Latvia (Riga), Croatia (Poreč), Slovenia (Koper), Ukraine (Sumy), Colombia (Bucaramanga) and Italy (Trieste and Rome).
