The Toronto Urban Photography Festival seeks to deconstruct and reconstruct new formulations of contemporary urban landscapes through the practice of photography. Using critical insights of urban environments and photography, a questioning of what constitutes the ‘urban,’ ‘street’ and ‘city’ will be examined through the medium of photography. TUPF seeks to engage photographic practitioners and critical theorists in dialogue surrounding how the city is imagined and viewed as part of the daily human fabric.

We’re teaming up with TUPF for this great event and bringing you guys some chances to be featured in Toronto and also to win some prizes! Because TUPF is all about the urban environment, we are looking for works that examine and critique the urban centers of where more than half of the world’s population live. Some ideas include the flow of human traffic and vehicular traffic, buildings, “lost” cities, etc. Think about what urban means to you and show us your best shots!
