Urban Photo Race Amsterdam
« on: May 15, 2017, 12:26:52 »
Hi all,
I just participated in the Urban Photo Race Rotterdam. A wonderful event. As a participant you have to take 3 photos for six different themes during the day. You als have to check in at four checkpoints throughout the city. Although it is not really a race, it is a challenge to come up with creative ideas for each theme and make three different photos related to that theme.


The next event is in Amsterdam. I already registered. If you are interested, here is a link:

Please let me know if you intend to go or already registered. It would be wonderful to meet there!

Peter

Sounds interesting, but I can't on this date.
In Copenhagen they have a similar thing called photo marathon, they do 12 and 24 hours, with 4 new themes every 4 hours. I have done it in the old film days, and when they did the last analog marathon, now it is digital.

The website is not very informative.

Do I have to download the three pics at each checkpoint?


How does it work?

Sorry for missing your post, Frank. I did not get a notification and was away. No, you give them your photos at the end of the day which gives you time to assess and select the photos you took during the day. You won't get all themes at the same time. IN Rotterdam we got 3 themes at the first checkpoint, and the others at the other checkpoints. By now, the first checkpoint is known. You will get the others (an address or location) .

I hope you can make it.. It's fun!

Nope, unfortunately my agenda is too full. House hold chores and (must do) social events.

Perhaps some other time. Or ... we need to organize one of our own again  8)
