ULI Urban Photo Essay Contest
Entries to Answer the Question:
What Defines Successful Urban Neighborhoods?
Urban Land Institute Northwest (ULI Northwest) is hosting a photo essay contest in conjunction with the 2014 Cascadia Regional Conference, which will be held on July 18 & 19 in Portland, Oregon.
Competition participants will address these concepts through a photo essay consisting of two to four images and a written statement of up to 300 words. The photo essay should aim to address the theme while answering the following question:
What ingredients or elements make up successful urban neighborhoods, and which of these will be most important as our world moves rapidly toward a more urban future?
Judging the competition are leaders of Portland’s thriving design community, including Brian Lee (Brewhouse), Brian Libby (Portland Architecture Blog), Patrick Nistler (Wieden+Kennedy), Chelsea Grassinger (Allied Works Architecture), and Julie Keefe (Portland’s Creative Laureate).
Participants can upload their submissions to the competition website starting on May 26th. The deadline for submissions is July 1st and semifinalists will be notified by second week of July. Five semifinalists will be selected to present their photo essays at the ULI Regional Conference in Portland on July 18, 2014.
A cash prize will be offered to the top three finalists in the following amounts:
