[fade]WHAT IS THE
URBAN PHOTO RACE[/fade]

[fade]In a nutshell, we're a photo marathon... in a more creative way we're the ultimate challenge for any street photographer.

Participants are challenged to make photo series (3 photos per theme) within a given time limit while walking the city from checkpoint to checkpoint.

The themes are disclosed throughout the day at scheduled moments and different venues (checkpoints). The purpose is to give you, the participant, an opportunity to see and look at the city in a different way, to discover new places and to meet other street savvy photographers while using your creativity to interpret and translate different themes into photographs.[/fade]

[fade]INSTAGRAM
PHOTO CONTESTS[/fade]

[fade]We want to bring the UPR experience to more people and because not everyone can come to our events we're taking the event to them.

The Instagram Photo Contest is a monthly challenge where we ask our followers to take a set of 3 photos of a given theme.

The winners will be announced at the end of each month and they will not only get posted on our feed but also win awards.[/fade]
