The CitiesToBe Photo Award is an international photography contest for images that portray cities and their challenging, yet inspiring complexity

Organized by CitiesToBe and powered by Anteverti, the CitiesToBe Photo Award is an urban photography contest that aims to support creators who use the city as their main theme, inspiring new reflections on the challenges the urban world is facing nowadays, and help us to better understand them. The organization of this Award aims to highlight our corporate strong commitment to artistic creation, which we consider a key engine of our society and our cities.

The 1st Edition of the CitiesTobe Photo Award was launched in December 2019 with an open call, which received 533 images from more than 60 countries in all continents. ‘Vorkuta’, by Russian photographer Roman Demyanenko, was awarded with the first prize and the image became part of Anteverti’s Urban Photography Private Collection.
