Urban Photo Fest
3-12 October 2013
Various locations, London

LIP has partnered with UPF once again for this festival, now in its second year. Events are organised in collaboration with partners throughout London, with contributions from photographers, artists, filmmakers and urban researchers. The theme is Urban Materiality, a concept embracing the physical fabric of the urban environment, with a programme including events featuring and facilitated by LIP members Hugh Look, John Levett, Michael Rodgers, Nick Scammell, Peter Luck and Judith Jones.

Also in collaboration, The Royal Photographic Society is hosting an open competition in advance with four themes: abstraction; architecture; objects; environment. There are some nifty prizes on offer and the clock’s ticking down. Details here: www.urbanphotofest.org/competition.php and for full registration and entry, see the RPS Competition site at www.rps-upf.org.

A full-day conference will be on at Tate Britain, and a symposium held at the British Library. For full event details see www.urbanphotofest.org
