CBRE Urban Photographer of the Year 2019

CBRE has launched its 2019 global Urban Photographer of the Year competition with the theme, “Future Cities.” Now in its 12th year, the competition continues to grow, with last year’s contest attracting more than 80,000 entries from 170 countries around the world.

This year’s theme invites photographers to submit photos that capture their vision of a future city.
The competition is free to enter and 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 will be awarded a special photography trip to a destination of their choice for themselves and a friend. Other prizes include GoPro packages, photographic equipment and more. CBRE is accepting entries until January 31, 2019 and the winners will be announced in May 2019.

How to Apply:
  • To enter the Contest, visit www.cbreupoty.com. 
  • Then, follow the online instructions to register your details including your age range and then upload and submit your Photo(s) and specify which hour of the day each Photo is meant to represent. 
  • The Photo submitted for a specific hour need not have been taken during that hour, but should look as if it was.
  • Each entrant may submit one Photo that represents one hour of the day, up to a total of twenty-four (24) photos (each representing a different hour of the day) per person for the entire Contest Period.

Photo Guidelines:
(Failure to meet these guidelines including for photos taken on a mobile device will result in entries being discounted and entries will not be judged):
  • Photos must be in .jpg format;
  • Photos must at least 300 dpi;
  • Photos must be saved in RGB/SRGB colour;
  • Photos must be between 1MB and 8MB in size; and
  • The Photo cannot have previously won any promotion or competition of any kind.
  • Watermarks are allowed but not encouraged. If your photo is selected as a winner, you will be expected to supply a photograph without a watermark for use in any competition promotion, including the Urban Photographer of the Year coffee table book.
Photos may be submitted that have been taken on a mobile device (i.e. a smartphone or tablet). Entrants will be asked to confirm whether the device used was a mobile device. Sponsor may check to confirm that photos have been taken on a mobile device. Any attempt to submit a Photo as a "Mobile Photo" that is not in fact taken on a mobile device will result in the entry or entries not being considered. Selecting "mobile" for Photos will enter the Photos into the Mobile category. Photos in this category may be eligible to win higher categories of prizes but will not retain the Mobile Prize.
