About six years ago, Urban Affairs Review started publishing a different cover photo for each issue, usually taken by one of the editors, editorial board members, or friends of the journal. The photos are taken in an urban setting and usually depict public art, crowds, architecture, or public transit. In mid-2020, we started to publish photos that portrayed current events in cities across the United States, specifically COVID-19, the protests in response to the murder of George Floyd, and the November election.
We realize there are different lockdowns and restrictions in place because of COVID-19, but please send us anything that captures the moment we are in now if anything strikes you. We are especially interested in featuring international cities and photos with crowds (or lack thereof). If your photo is chosen, we just need a short paragraph explaining the photo and when it was taken (and you are given credit, of course). Please send your photo to Assistant Managing Editor Elizabeth Motyka at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 12th.
