Submissions to URBAN 2019 Photo Awards are officially closed.
We’d like to thank the many participants and wish everyone a sincere good luck.
This amazing tenth edition, which began last March 1st, confirmed the growing trend of the competition and proved that URBAN has become an important event and followed by many photographers. In the contest, 6,049 photos and 346 portfolios for 1,257 participants from all over the world.
The jury is already working: shortly Selected Photographers will be published and by the half of July the Semifinalist ones. At the end of July it will be the turn of the Finalists and in mid-September the Winners will be announced. Each ranking will be in alphabetical order: we will reveal the final podium on Saturday 26 October 2019 at Trieste Photo Days, where the jury president Martin Parr will personally award the Winner Overall.
This year, URBAN has a prize pool of more than € 10,000.
Over the next few weeks, the best photos of URBAN 2019 will be selected to become part of a “traveling” exhibition circuit around Europe. Austria (Klagenfurt), Poland (Krakow, Lodz, Raciborz, Gliwice and Warsaw), Hungary (Budapest, Pécs and Miskolc), Serbia (Beograd), Cyprus (limassol, Paphos and Nicosia), Latvia (Riga), Slovenia (Koper), Germany (Berlin and Hamburg), Croatia (Poreč and Rijeka), Ukraine (Sumy), Colombia (Bucaramanga) and naturally, in Italy (Milan, Venice, Trieste and Rome).
In addition, a selection of photos and projects will compose the fifth edition of Urban unveils the City and its secrets, which will be presented at Trieste Photo Days in late October.
