welcome



12h race

Relax… No need to hurry, or maybe you do! Go against the clock and snap your way to the finish line.


18 photos

Take as many as you want but in the end, 18 is all you need. Remember, creativity is the key.


4 checkpoints

A city to be explored… Find all the hidden corners and discover new places.

 

 

It´s a one day (12h) digital photo contest with the purpose to give you an opportunity to see and look at the city in a different way.

To discover new places and to meet other urban savvy photographers while using your creativity to interpret and translate different themes into photographs.

Throughout the day, you are asked to take a set of 18 photos divided in 6 themes. These themes will be disclosed along the day at different venues.

At the end of the day we all gather at the last checkpoint to deliver the photos that you took and selected.

After that your job is done, you can sit down with us, enjoy a nice cold beer and tell us all about your day adventures.

A couple days later our jury goes through all of the submitted photos and selects the 3 best sets and the best themes. Winners are later announced in a closing event where we deliver awards and hold a photo exhibition.
