After a great summer of international exhibit previews, the winning pictures and portfolios of URBAN 2017 Photo Awards are finally here, as promoted by Italian art association dotART together with Photographers.it, Sprea Fotografia (media partner) and Stampa-Su-Tela.it (main partner).
You can see the complete list of winners and their images by visiting the official URBAN Photo Awards page. There, you will find that one name is missing: the URBAN 2017 Winner Overall. The overall winner has already been chosen by Jury President Maurizio Galimberti and will be announced on Saturday October 28, 2017 at 8 PM at Trieste Photo Days festival during the award ceremony. Maurizio Galimberti will personally award the winners.
Winners will share a €6,000 prize value, with €1,500 going to the overall winner, among other prizes offered by partners Think Tank Photo Bags and Stroppa Straps and their picture will be published in prestigious international online photo magazines, such as Lounge Magazyn, The Post Internazionale, DNG Photo Magazine, Prism Magazine, and of course, our very own Street Photography Magazine.
Among the prizes, there has been a prestigious exhibit (in August) at the Porec Museum (Croatia) for 3 ranked portfolios: “Nothing will stop us” by Silvia Andrade, “Nonna Angela” by Christian Milotic, and “A Transporting Experience” by Ricci Shryock.
In addition, a selection of single images and projects will compose the third edition of “Urban Unveils the City and its Secrets”, that will be presented at the Trieste Photo Days on Saturday, October 28, before the award ceremony.
