    Now in its seventh edition, URBAN sees every year thousands of participating 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.

    Thank you for your attention.

    URBAN 2016 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.

    To take part, just follow the instructions on Works must be submitted no later than May 31st, 2016. Professional artists, photographers and communication experts will judge entries and choose the winners (jury members are currently being selected, with the final panel to be announced shortly).

    The total prize money is more than € 3,000. Absolute novelty this year for URBAN is the partnership with the Zavičajni muzej Poreštine of Poreč (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 thousand units in the summer time). Moreover, the Museum will release an official certificate of exhibition.

    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 Italy (Trieste and Rome).

    URBAN exhibitions will summit in October during Trieste Photo Days 2016, the international photo festival promoted by dotART. This growing festival that will get to its third edition, has URBAN as its "main contributor" during the opening days. There will be the Award Ceremony and the Winners' Exhibition other than a series of personal and group exhibits around the city.
