Urban Photographer of the Year 2016 Competition

Publish Date: Sep 19, 2016

Deadline: Nov 30, 2016

 Submit your images that embody the connections that drive city life for your chance to win a photography trip of a lifetime and other great prizes.

The CBRE Urban Photographer of the Year competition is the largest of its kind, celebrating the richness and diversity of city life around the world by challenging both amateur and professional photographers alike to capture the essence of the urban environment.
Cities rarely align along a single axis. They thrive in a constant state of change, adaptation and evolution—driven by the people, places and perspectives that flow within them. In the competition’s 10th year, we invite you to capture and celebrate moments of connection in the urban environment. Read more about this year’s theme, ‘Cities of Connections: People, Places, and Perspectives’.


Open only to individuals 13 years of age or older as of date of registration. Minors in their jurisdiction of residence must have the consent of their parent or legal guardian to enter or win.   Employees, officers and directors of CBRE, Inc. (“Sponsor”) and its parent, subsidiaries, and affiliated companies, advertising, promotion or production agencies, Web masters/suppliers (and their immediate family members [spouse, parents, children, siblings etc.] and individuals residing in the same household, whether or not related) are not eligible to enter.  


The Contest begins and therefore the period for submission of entries into the Contest begins on 1 September 2016 at 12:00:00 pm Greenwich Mean Time ("GMT") plus 1 hour(i.e. British Summer Time) ”) and ends 30 November 2016 at 11:59:59 pm “GMT + 1”  (the “Contest Period”). The Sponsor's computer is the official timekeeping device for the Contest. All entries must be received by the Sponsor no later than the end of the Contest Period.  Any entries received after the Contest Period ends will be automatically disqualified.


The Contest invites the entrant to submit original photos capturing what the entrant considers to be the essence of “The Connected City,” at any time of day, be it poignant, inspiring, quirky or amusing (the “Photo” or “Photos”).


To enter the Contest, visit the official website by clicking Further Orricial Information below the announcement.  Then, follow the online instructions to register your details including your age range and then upload and submit your Photo(s) and specify which hour of the day each Photo is meant to represent.  The Photo submitted for a specific hour need not have been taken during that hour, but should look as if it was. Each entrant may submit one Photo that represents one hour of the day, up to a total of twenty-four (24) photos (each representing a different hour of the day) per person for the entire Contest Period.


  • Photos must be in .jpg format;
  • Photos must at least 300 dpi;
  • Photos must be saved in RGB/SRGB colour;
  • Photos must be between 1MB and 8MB in size; and 
  • The Photo cannot have previously won any promotion or competition of any kind.
Photos may be submitted that have been taken on a mobile device (i.e. a smartphone or tablet).  Entrants will be asked to confirm whether the device used was a mobile device.  Sponsor may check to confirm that photos have been taken on a mobile device. Any attempt to submit a Photo as a "Mobile Photo" that is not in fact taken on a mobile device will result in the entry or entries not being considered. Selecting "mobile" for Photos will enter the Photos into the Mobile category. Photos in this category may be eligible to win higher categories of prizes but will not retain the Mobile Prize.
