Photo contest ‘Capture your rooftop feeling’

Are you an amateur photographer who likes to shoot the best pictures from the roof? Then enter our photo contest called ‘Capture your rooftop feeling’ this year. The best photos will be displayed in an expo on the roof of Las Palmas, where the public will choose the final winner.

The contest

We always love pretty pictures of Rotterdam’s rooftop landscape. This year, we are also curious to know through which eyes the people from Rotterdam (or visitors to the city) view their city from above. We are therefore calling on amateur photographers to submit their most beautiful, surprising image that best depicts the theme of ‘rooftop feeling’. A professional jury will then select the contenders for the grand prize.

The photo selection will be exhibited during our festival weekend, when the public can vote for their favourite photo, which will then become the winner of this photo contest. Voting is possible on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 June during a visit to the roof of Las Palmas, the building that also houses the Dutch Photo Museum.
