Taking on the streets of Amsterdam!
We would like to congratulate everyone who finished the race and thank you all for making this another successful UPR edition.
Every year we try to bring you to some new location and neighborhood of Amsterdam. This year we chose for a more central route, hitting the bustling city center, taking you along some busy streets and nice an refreshing parks and squares. All in the search for the ultimate UPR photo set.
We are very proud to have had so many participants this year, new and old, beginner and experience photographers came together for this exciting photographic experience. Not only that but we were also very happy to see so much media attention to our event. If you want a recap of the day's event and how it went for some of our participants, please check out the following videos and audio reports.
In the end what matters is that you came and that you did your best to finish and that above all, that you had fun participating.
Lovely to see surprised new faces, realizing this is indeed a race and you have to give the energy the whole day, as well as many regular followers, now more laid-back, becoming more picky with their choices. But, honestly, what we enjoyed and appreciated the most is the interaction with everyone. Even if this is a tight-schedule day, everyone is so collaborative, motivating, giving tips to each other, and giving us constant feedback.
Over the years, the most valuable thing has been the beautiful network formed around this event. We would like to thank Alicia Sanz andBeatriz Pineda, for helping us out with the race day tasks, to all of checkpoint locations we visited and finally all participants for following us and translating our ideas into great images!!!
We hope to see you all at the exhibition!! In the mean time here's some snapshots of that day.

The GT winners are out and they found their "Water in the city" photo.
As it is becoming customary on our Amsterdam event, we participate in a global theme alongside other photo marathons around the world. This means that all around the world in each separate photo marathons we all shared a common theme, this year it was a rather suitable theme for Amsterdam.
We're proud to be among many great cities like Dublin, Shenyang, Nice, Patras, Copenhagen and Berlin.
The winners of this theme will be shared amongst all photo marathons and be shown on each respective city exhibition event.
Selecting the best photo sets and the best theme winners is quite a challenge for our Jury. Many times they select a winner for their body of work while still having preferred a photo from another participant, these are the individual photos that each Jury liked the best.
