The Toronto Urban Photography Festival (TUPF) is looking for critical photographic works that explore the intricacies of the urban environment. We are looking for works from visual urbanists, photographers of all genres (street, urban, objects, cityscapes/landscapes), and artists that engage with the photographic medium to examine and critique the urban and peri-urban centers where more than half of the world’s population live.
Keeping with the festival’s vision, the only requirement is that the photos examine some facet of an urban environment. Photos can be from anywhere in the world and don’t have to solely be from Toronto (even if you live in Toronto and submit from here). Some potential ideas to explore: how the flow of human traffic is controlled by that of vehicular traffic, the environmental change and impact of skyrise buildings, the lost city: abandoned buildings and their reclamation and reconstitution, and myriad other ideas and visions that represent TUPF’s core mission. (These are just examples and do not necessarily represent the works that will be chosen or the criteria with which the TUPF curatorial committee will base their selections).
The call for works is to gather the most exciting and critically informed photographers and artists from the GTAH and around the world to showcase their talents in some of Toronto’s premier galleries. Submissions have a chance to be shown as part of the following exhibitions:
