Play is the rocket fuel for children’s development and learning, yet many urban environments lack a city-wide strategy and opportunities to play.
Are you ready to share the state of play in your city? PlacemakingX is looking for professional and amateur photographers around the world to capture play in cities.
The Real Play City Challenge Photography contest is open to photographers around the world who are 18+ years old.
Publish your picture on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtags: #RealPlayCityChallenge and #Amateur
The photograph must be yours, original, previously unpublished work and not feature or focus on any material owned or controlled by third parties.
Your photograph must capture play in cities. Show us playful environments: How the built environment influences children’s development and fosters interaction between children and caregivers.
You will hold all copyrights and intellectual property on your work and grant PlacemakingX and its affiliates and partners a royalty-free, worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive license to use it as listed in the terms & conditions of this contest.
We strongly advise not to show children's faces in the photograph. If you do so, please make sure you have the required authorization as you will need to fill in a consent form when selected as a winner.
