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?
