URBAN Photo Awards is a photo contest that sees every year thousand of partecipating pictures and hundreds of participants from all over the world. It is an always growing international photography competition, one of the very few that goes “over the boundaries” of Internet offering to photographers real visibility through dozens of international photo exhibitions.

Only in 2018 URBAN realized 47 exhibitions displaying about 950 pictures. URBAN’s exhibitions culminate during Trieste Photo Days festival, which hosts the awards ceremony, the winners’ collective exhibition of winners and several exhibits of the best ranked photos.

The competition is open to all and features two distinct sections, one for Themed photos, one for Projects, Portfolios & Series. It is possible to participate in both sections.

The contest’s main theme is Urban Photography, that explores all photography forms set in the urban fabric. The star of the show: the City. Daily life in the city and in small villages, artistic views, architectural geometries, the fragments of colour that break the city greyness.
