Urbex

This contest is for your urban exploration photos. Urban exploration (often abbreviated as urbex or EU) consists of exploring artificial structures, often abandoned ruins or poorly visible components of the urban environment. I look forward to seeing your best urbex images.

Inside Abandoned Buildings

For this contest I would like to see your photographs of the inside of abandoned buildings which you have explored but have been forgotten. Please only show the inside of buildings that have been abandoned, not maintained ruins. The dirtier, creepier, and more forgotten, the better. Also, please make sure your photographs are taken inside the building.
