Global real estate firm CBRE has launched its global Urban Photographer of the Year competition with the theme, Cities at Work.
Now in its ninth year, the competition continues to attract photographers from around the world.
This year the contest challenges photographers to capture what urban means to them in an ever-changing global landscape.
The competition is free to enter and is open to both professional and amateur photographers. A unique element to the competition allows each entrant to submit up to 24 images; one to represent each hour of the day.
The overall global winner of the competition will be able to choose a luxury photo safari from a range of exotic locations sponsored by CBRE. Prizes will be awarded to regional winners in Europe, Asia and the Americas, and for the 24-standout images representing each hour of the day.
Over the past eight years the competition has built up a unique and unrivalled insight into urban life. Previous winners have captured life in the souks of Marrakech, early morning commutes in Hong Kong and a jeweler lost in her work in Düsseldorf.
Paul Suchman, CBRE’s Global Chief Marketing Officer, said: “The creativity this initiative fuels inside CBRE is simply outstanding.
“The Urban Photographer of the Year initiative also provides a unique opportunity to extend the reach and relevance of our brand to more consumers outside the commercial real estate space.”
