CBRE URBAN PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2019 COMPETITION OPENS FOR ENTRIES

‘Future Cities’ is the Theme for 12th Annual Urban Photography Competition

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.

Martin Samworth, Group President and Chief Executive Officer, Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) at CBRE and the competition’s executive sponsor commented: “This competition always provides inspiring insights into how we interact with our ever-changing urban environments and this year’s theme will encourage photographers to interpret how they perceive our cities of the future.”

Leslie Gall, CBRE’s Senior Vice President of Marketing, says, “We are a company deeply connected with the urban environment, and the Urban Photographer of the Year competition allows us to demonstrate our knowledge and passion for city life. As evidenced by the record number of entries we received last year, this unique competition continues to capture the interest and imagination of photographers around the world.”

Richard Morgan, an award-winning British street photographer living in Poland, was named as the overall global 2018 competition winner with his image, What are you looking at?” – a compelling image connecting local and tourist spectators and the city in Poznan, Poland.
