The portrait by Oscar Rialubin from the Philippines is called Xyclops.

Martin Samworth, chief executive of CBRE said: “The competition constantly provides us with new perspectives on working environments within cities. This year was no exception and Rialubin’s intimate portrait of a watch repairman gives insight into a universal trade. Urban life is constantly changing and the beauty of the competition is that it has captured this every year through the winning images.”

Welcome to the Urban Photographer of the Year competition 2014
The brief of the competition ‘Cities at Work’ challenges you to capture what you consider to be the essence of urban life at any time of day, be it poignant, inspiring, quirky or amusing.

Open to both professional and amateur photographers, the competition is free to enter and accepts up to 24 images from an individual entrant; one to represent each hour of the day.

CBRE today launched its global Urban Photographer of the Year competition with the theme, Cities at Work. Now in its eighth year, the competition continues to attract photographers from around the world. This year’s entrants are asked to capture the essence and reality of the working life of a city, with all of its beauty and day to day routine.

Open to both professional and amateur photographers, the competition is free to enter and accepts up to 24 images from an individual entrant; one to represent each hour of the day. The overall global winner of the 2014 competition will be able to choose a luxury photo safari from a range of exotic locations sponsored by CBRE. Prizes will also be awarded to regional winners in Europe, Asia and the Americas and for the 24 standout images representing each hour of the day.

Previous winners have drawn inspiration from cycling commuters, shoe shiners in New York and the bustling markets of Cambodia. Last year’s winning image, captured by Mark French, depicted a bus driver checking his reflection during the morning rush hour in Hong Kong.

This year the competition has a new category for children and young adults aged between 13 and 25 (including students). Supported by Plan International, CBRE’s new EMEA charity partner, the category will be judged by young adults involved in Plan International and the charities board.

The closing date for entries is 8 August 2014.
