The results of this year’s Urban Photographer of the Year competition are in! Now in its ninth year, the competition attracted more than 21,000 entries from 113 countries worldwide – its most successful year to date. Look at our winners’ gallery to see the diversity and richness of our cities bought to life.

This year’s winning image captures the lifeblood of our cities – its people. ‘Xyclops’, taken by Oscar Rialubin from the Philippines, is a stunning portrayal of a unique character whose face tells a thousand stories.

Each of the regional winners, from Ukraine, Canada, and New Zealand, show the stark contrasts of working life across the globe, through the lens of the individuals within them. These photos constantly influence our perceptions and thinking about cities, offering views we might not otherwise see on our own.
