The thirteenth edition of URBAN Photo Awards is just around the corner: submissions will open on Tuesday, March 1, 2022! In the meantime, the URBAN Photo Awards are happy to announce the first “super-juror” with the task of choosing the winner of the URBAN Book Award section: Susan Meiselas, one of the most influential documentary photographers in the world, member of Magnum Photos agency and president of the Magnum Foundation.
Urban Photo Awards
Another living legend of international photography will therefore honor us with her presence in the contest jury, after Bruce Gilden, Paolo Pellegrin and Francesco Cito (2021), Alex Webb (2020) and Martin Parr (2019).
The URBAN Book Award section is dedicated to extended projects (“dummies”, sketches of photo books), ideal for photographers who feel the limit of 12 photos set for the Projects & Portfolios section as a restraint. The award offers the winning photographer the opportunity to see their authorial project published as a paper volume and presented in the international setting of the Trieste Photo Days 2022 festival.
Susan Meiselas will be one of the main guests of Trieste Photo Days and will personally award the winner of the URBAN Book Award section during the Award ceremony of the contest, Saturday 29 October 2022. At the festival, Meiselas will also hold an exclusive talk and will be one of the protagonists of the project WOW: Worlds of Women.
