Get ready for the Amsterdam Urban Photo Race on Saturday, July 26 2014 !!!
We have crafted a very nice photo race this year, with plenty of photo opportunity locations and venues, not to mention the themes.
This year we’ll be starting the event at Amsterdam Oud-West, more specifically at Cafe Kostverloren. Here we will welcome all of you and start you off on your urban adventure. We’ll be there from 10:00 till 11:30, so be sure to come within the allowed time. For those coming from outside Amsterdam and arriving at Centraal Station, there are two direct tram lines that connect it very close. that’s the 17 at Kinkerstraat and the 1 at Overtoom. If you have any doubts on how to get there, feel free to contact us.
About the photo race
Amateur and professional photographers are invited to experience and share a unique view of Amsterdam in this exciting 12-hour competition exploring the city. For the fourth consecutive year, the Amsterdam Urban Photo Race will take place on July 26, 2014. During this truly original, one-day (12 hour) digital photo competition, photographers are asked to capture a set of 18 photos divided into 6 themes while they walk, bike, or tram through the city. Part treasure hunt, part photojournalism, the Urban Photo Race invites participants to look at the city of Amsterdam in a different way, discover new places, and meet other urban-savvy photographers while using their creativity to interpret and translate different themes into photographs.
The Urban Photo Race is open to all amateur and professional photographers alike to showcase their vision and skills.
How it works
The 6 themes are disclosed by the Urban Photo Race team at 3 designated checkpoints throughout the day. Photographers must make it to all checkpoints to receive themes and qualify for entry. At the end of the day photos are collected and later submitted to the jury. The winners will receive awards and be honoured at an exhibition that will take place in Amsterdam, 2 to 3 months after the competition day.

About The Urban Photo Race
The Urban Photo Race began in 2011 as a collaborative project between Nutabi Camargo, Luis Monteiro and Tiago Rosado. The goal was to provide an interesting way not only to discover the city, but also to explore and develop your photographic skills. Making a race out of it, adds time and themes as an extra element that participants have to deal with, this takes them out of their comfort zone and gives plenty of space for creativity.
