THEMED PHOTOS


» THE CONTEST An international photography competition now in its seventh edition. A world wide stage on which to get noticed for photographers. A tour of exhibits and an international photo festival. URBAN International Photo Awards is a world wide photo contest that has come to its 7th edition. URBAN looks for talent and quality both among professional and amateur photographers, offering them an international stage from which to get noticed. Promoted by dotART, a Trieste (Italy) based cultural association with years of experience working in the field of artistic photography and the visual arts, URBAN sees every year thousand of partecipating pictures and hundreds of participants from all over the world. It is an always growing international contest, 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 2015 URBAN realized 28 exhibitions displaying about 600 pictures. Behind it all, there is always the pursue of enhancement of photographic talent and quality. URBAN is divided into two sections: one is dedicated to “Themed Photos”, with its main theme about Street Photography, which has formerly given the name to the contest since its first edition. Real, instant images capable of telling stories woven into the urban fabric. URBAN unveils the city and its secrets. In addition to street, URBAN 2016 will carry two more themes: Sports and Nature. The other section is “Projects & Portfolios” where each participant can submit a series of images oriented to show his or her idea through photographs. Other than regular prizes, URBAN gives the chance to the best ranked photographers to enter its tour of travelling photo exhibitions, the real and tangible value of this contest. Since 2011 URBAN has setup exhibitions in Poland (Krakow and Warsaw), Hungary (Budapest, Pécs and Miskolc), Cyprus (limassol, Paphos and Nicosia), Latvia (Riga), Slovenia (Koper), Ukraine (Sumy), Colombia (Bucaramanga) and naturally, in Italy (Trieste and Rome). Absolute novelty this year for URBAN is the partenrship with the Zavičajni muzej Poreštine (Museum of the Parentine Territory of Poreč), the oldest museum of Istria (Croatia). Three ranked photographers from the “Projects & Portfolios” section –the Winner and two photographers selected directly by the curators of the museum– will see their works exhibited in the Museum from July 21st to August 31st (forty days during tourist peak averaging 120,000 people in the summer time). Moreover, the Museum will release an official certificate of exhibition.
