Call for Entries in National Faces of Transportation Photo and Video ContestTony Dorsey, Media Relations Manager 07/21/2017 0 COMMENTS
WASHINGTON – Calling all photographers! The national Faces of Transportation photography and video contest sponsored by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials is accepting entries for the 12th annual competition.
“We hope this contest will give people a reason to stop and pay attention to the many ways transportation touches their lives,” said Lloyd Brown, AASHTO director of communications. “We’re asking for a wide range of images — anything from workers designing and constructing projects to people riding bicycles, walking on trails or using public transit, cars and planes. Every image helps AASHTO tell America’s unique transportation story.”
The photographs and videos will be judged in several transportation-themed categories: Motor Vehicles; Roadways and Bridges; Pedestrians and Bicycles; Ships and Boats; Trains; and Planes. The competition will award $500 cash prizes to the winners of both the Best Overall Photograph that will be determined by a panel of judges, and the People’s Choice award to be determined by online voting. $150 cash prizes will be awarded to the winners in the two video categories: Amateur/In-house video production and Professional video production.
The deadline for contest entries is Aug. 25, 2017. Online voting will begin Aug. 25 and continue through Sept. 8, 2017. Visit the Faces of Transportation website for complete details about the competition and how to enter your photo or video. The winners will be announced this fall.
