The General Directorate of Sport of the Madrid City Council and PHotoESPAÑA celebrate the proclamation of the city as World Capital of Sport 2022 through a call online for all audiences, which will lead to a street exhibition that intensifies the importance of practicing sports at all levels.

The world capital of sport recognizes the effort made by Madrid to bring sports activities to all districts, attending to different age groups, caring for people with disabilities and reinforcing the promotion of women's sports, among other values.

In this context, the call #MadridCapitalSport2022 seeks images that reflect well-being and improvement in the quality of life through the practice of physical activities in the city of Madrid. Photographs in which moments of fun, social integration, coexistence, education, respect, unity and teamwork are also sought.

An independent jury will choose the twenty best images, twenty "medallist" photographs that will make up an outdoor exhibition in the public space of Madrid.
