Create Great Cities - Photo Essay Competition

The Competition

In celebration of the Great British Festival, the British Council and British Embassy are inviting amateur and professional photographers to take part in ‘Create Great Cities Photo Essay Competition’ (the “Competition”). 

Shortlisted photo essays will be exhibited at Bonifacio Global City High Street, Taguig from 24-26 February. The grand prize will be a trip for two to London courtesy of Etihad Airways.

Photo essays are a series of photos that tell a story.

It is one of the British Council’s goals to contribute to more liveable and inclusive cities in the Philippines. One way is by using art and creativity as means of engagement and inspiration for urban dwellers. Liveable cities possess – among others - a vibrant street life, green spaces, an efficient transportation system, healthy inhabitants, an inclusive economy, and safe, accessible public spaces.
