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.
