The competition was divided into two parts. The first one (Streets, People, Spaces and Creative) is devoted to broadly understood street photography. The organizers are looking for real, inspiring photos that tell stories woven into the urban fabric. The second part is Projects & Portfolio, in which each participant can submit a series of photos aimed at showing their idea or project through photography. For this we have the Urban Book Awards.
