The Alliance for Biking & Walking is hosting the 2011 People Powered Movement Photo Contest. The contest aims to both celebrate the beauty and energy of active transportation and continue to build an online library of high-quality images that can be used by bicycle and pedestrian advocacy organizations across North America. Your image must fit into one of seven categories outlined below:
- Biking and Walking
- Open Streets
- Advocates in Action
- Diversity/Building an Inclusive Movement
Additional entrants in the Women, Diversity and Open Streets categories are particularly encouraged,
Individuals can submit up to 20 photo entries via the contest website until October 31. From November 1 to 30, public voting will determine the finalists in each category. A panel of expert and advocate judges from across the continent will then determine the winners, to be announced in March 2012.
Here is the best part: The overall grand prize is an all-expenses-paid biking or walking trip to Italy, from VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations. That’s 20 chances to ride your bike through the picturesque landscapes of Tuscany or walk along the shaded hillsides of the Amalfi Coast.
You can also win a new bicycle from PUBLIC Bikes; bags from Ortlieb; lights from Planet Bike; gear from Fyxation; helmets from Bern and more! Plus, all winning photos will be featured in a 2012 issue of Momentum magazine.
