Kong, August 4,
2015 – The CBRE
Urban Photographer of the Year 2015 competition has had
the most successful year since its inception in 2006. Due to the popularity of
the competition, the deadline for entry has been extended and the competition
will now close at 12am GMT on August 14 (Friday).
The theme of this year is ‘Cities at Work’. Over 12,500
entries have already been received from 97 countries worldwide, more entries
than any other year. There has been an overwhelming response from Hong Kong so
far. The extension means there is still time for Hong Kong to submit more

professional and amateur photographers. Entrants can submit up to 24 images,
each representing an hour of the day. Those who have already entered fewer than
24 images may submit additional entries for a chance to win.
The overall winner will be crowned the CBRE Urban
Photographer of the Year, and will win a photography trip of a lifetime. Past
winners have visited Turkey, Morocco, Bhutan and Namibia. Prizes will also be
awarded to regional winners in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), Asia
