For a vision ofa future city

CBRE announces urban photographer of the year 2019 competition

CBRE (which offers commercial real estate services) has announced the launch of its 2019 global Urban Photographer of the Year competition based on theme, “Future Cities.” Now in its 12th year, the competition continues to grow and attracted more than 80,000 entries last year from 170 countries.

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 choice along with 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.

Raka Khashu Razdan, Head, Marketing and Communications, CBRE India, said, “Urban Photographer of the Year is a much-anticipated event amongst emerging photographers and enables them to showcase their talent globally. We are committed towards building better and smart infrastructure for the future, and the theme for this year will help us envision the future together. We have been receiving captivating entries every year and hope that this year too, the competition will help us introduce engaging talent. With a theme that is innovative, we are eager to see what people in different age groups expect from the cities of future.”
