Urban Explorers: a photography contest for the whole public and hotels

Do you have an exploratory spirit? Do you know Montevideo and value its landscapes? Do you want to share your favorite corners? This is the opportunity to test your talent to capture the essence of our city.

Hyatt Centric Montevideo and El País launch “Urban Explorers”, an amateur photography contest and photography news that seeks to reward the best postcards in our city. The objective of the contest is to motivate the exploratory spirit of each one.

Located in the heart of the Pocitos rambla, Hyatt Centric Montevideo is designed for guests and locals to feel welcome, and has the desire to be part of the daily life of the Montevideans.

“We are very happy with this contest, because we want to be part of the city’s life and share with the Montevideans the corners of their daily lives, to actively and genuinely integrate the community,” said Guillaume Paupy, General Manager of Hyatt Centric Montevideo. “The hotel was conceived to be in the center of the action and to be an exploration platform for the culture that surrounds us. This contest seeks to make known the riches of the city, by those who love it,
