Relax… No need to hurry, or maybe you do! Go against the clock and snap your way to the finish line. Take as many photos as you want but in the end, 18 is all you need.
A city to be explored… Find all the hidden corners and discover new places.
Remember, creativity is the key.

Was that fun or what...!?
What an amazing day we had! Thank you all who made it to the race despite the bad weather forecast. I guess it's not a couple drops what will hold you from attending this historical UPR event.
We kept hearing lot's of regular UPR participants who where quite excited about the opportunity to photograph a new city, and such a distinct one for that matter. We were also happy to welcome everyone who was attending our event for the first time, always a pleasure to provide you with such a different day.
Rotterdam received us with open arms and we'll sure be back for many more.
This wasn't only an historical event for being the first edition in Rotterdam but also because it broke all our previous records in terms of participants. We had 233 registrations, from which 201 started the race and 159 finished it. To put it into perspective, that's 2862 photos that the Jury will now have to sort through.
We know it's a tough day and we can only hope we provided for a challenging and photographic fun day. The photos will now be sent to the Jury who will take their time to go through them and select the 3 winners and the 6 best themes.
We hope to see you all at the exhibition!! In the mean time here's some snapshots of that day.
Rotterdam is a whole new game, but when it comes to awards, we don't play around.
We've put our many years of expertise to work and got some very cool awards for you. Our sponsors aren't just for show, they are the backbone of our event. They make it even more interesting for you to participate and for you to push harder to win.

Celebrating our past events
We created the Urban Photo Race back in 2011 and although it's not that long ago we're very proud of the work that our participants have done since then, while participating in our race.
Showcasing our winning participants in a hall of fame is the least we could do.
Check out our previous events and winners, if for nothing else, take it as inspiration for the upcoming one. ;)
Our newly formed team in Rotterdam comes full of energy to take the Urban Photo Race to the streets.
As we grow to other cities nationwide and internationally, so does our team with the integration of the local collaborators.
