A free Photo Marathon in the occasion of the Car Free Sunday in Brussels on Sunday, September 22, 2019.

Exclusively on the 22nd of September, we are asking people to take photos in the Brussels-Capital Region and share them on their Instagram account with the hashtag #BSPFPhotoMarathon. Alternatively, people can also send their photos to our email account: contest@bspfestival.org.

Participation is for free.

The photos should represent the real essence of the city, highlighting why Brussels is a worthy place of visiting and discovering. The photos should be in the theme of Street Photography, meaning not-posed, real-life situations happening in the city. Photos can be in black and white or in color. They can have Instagram filters or enhancements as long as they don’t disrupt the reality of the photo. Only photos that are taken and uploaded to Instagram (or sent to our email) on the 22nd will be considered.


The best picture will be printed as a postcard promoting the photographer and given to visitors for free as a souvenir of the city during the fourth edition of the Brussels Street Photography Festival this 4-6 October 2019.

The sole winner will be announced during the week of the 23-29 September.
