URBAN Photo Awards 2024


The Italian cultural association dotART, based in Trieste is launching the 15th edition of URBAN Photo Awards. The contest is open to everybody worldwide and it is organized into 4 sections: Single Photos (divided in 4 themes: Streets, People, Spaces and Creative), Projects & Portfolios, URBAN Book & Zine Award and URBAN Photo Arena.

Contestants can participate in more than one section at the same time. The general theme of the contest is Urban Life and Urban Photography. The theme delves into modernity through all kinds of photography set in the fabric of the city. At the heart of the contest is the City, the urban environment and the humanity living there: the everyday life of big cities and small towns, the contrasts and the contradictions between the city and the countryside, the aesthetic views, the architectural geometries, fragments of color breaking up the grayness of the city. Real, immediate images, able to recount the City and its stories.
