Urban Photographer of the Year 2016


The CBRE Urban Photographer of the Year competition is the largest of its kind, celebrating the richness and diversity of city life around the world by challenging both amateur and professional photographers alike to capture the essence of the urban environment.
Cities rarely align along a single axis. They thrive in a constant state of change, adaptation and evolution—driven by the people, places and perspectives that flow within them.

In the competition’s 10th year, we invite you to capture and celebrate moments of connection in the urban environment. Read more about this year’s theme, ‘Cities of Connections: People, Places, and Perspectives’.

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).
