Keep the Moment photo club

Keep the Moment has a photography club with meetings, lectures, exhibitions and outings. There is a monthly meet-up.



The Urban Photo Race is a digital photo marathon.

Throughout the day participants are challenged to make photo series of several themes (3 photos per theme) within a given time limit. These themes will be disclosed at scheduled and different venues (checkpoints). The purpose is to give participants 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 their creativity to interpret and translate different themes into photographs.

There are always those who think 12h is too much and others for whom it’s too little. We heard your comments on our surveys and decided to cater an UPR to everyone. So we created 3 race formats which will take place on the same day.

UPR - S (6 hours - 3 themes) UPR - M (12 hours - 6 themes) UPR - L (24 hours - 10 themes)

You can pick which one suits you best at race day. Remember that you can only upgrade from S to M and to L but not the other way around (downgrade race format). Please read all about our race formats on our website.

After the race day, the photos are submitted to the Jury for voting. This normally take some time (several weeks) as they need to go through thousands of photos and select the best sets.

Winners are later announced and the awards delivered in a closing event. price 43,13 euro Ticket sales: …
