German photographer wins Urban Photographer Of The Year for 2014

German photographer Marius Vieth has been named the winner of the CBRE Urban Photographer of the Year competition for 2014.

German photographer Marius Vieth has been named the winner of the CBRE Urban Photographer of the Year competition for 2014. His image ‘Masks of Society’ was selected from among 11,500 entries from 79 countries. Marius’s prize is a luxury photography safari from a range of destinations across the globe. The Urban Photographer Of The Year competition is the largest of its kind. Open to both professional and amateur photographers, entrants are asked to capture the essence and reality of the working life of a city with all of its beauty and day to day routine.

This year, the competition also offered regional and youth prizes for the first time (13-15 and 16-25 years). The EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) prize was awarded to Carlos da Costa Branco for ‘Dancing in the Street’ which depicts a traffic warden in Lisbon. The Asia Pacific prize went to Ly Hoang Long and Johanna Siegmann was the winner of the Americas prize.

Martin Samworth, Chief Executive Officer, EMEA, CBRE said: “CBRE’s world revolves around architecture, commercial real estate and placemaking and people’s interaction with the built environment is of great interest and importance. The beauty of our competition is that it generates such a wealth of images; showing urban life from perspectives many of us have never even considered. Vieth’s image captures a perfect moment where someone is fully immersed in a detailed element of their work. It is a quiet moment of precision in a hectic urban setting.”
