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

Organized by CitiesToBe and powered by Anteverti, the CitiesToBe Photo Award is inspired by our corporate strong commitment to artistic creation, which we consider a key engine of our society and our cities — and as a way to support creators that use the city as their main theme, inspiring new reflections on the challenges that face the urban world and helping us better understand them.

The 1st Edition of the CitiesTobe Photo Award was launched in December 2019, and its call received 533 photographs from more than 60 countries and all continents. ‘Vorkuta’, by Russian photographer Roman Demyanenko, was awarded the CitiesToBe Photo Award 2020, for which Demyanenko received an acquisitive prize of 1,500 euros. At the same time, the image became part of Anteverti’s Private Collection of urban photography.
