Alliance Launching Photo Contest

Published August 26, 2009

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (BRAIN)—Support grassroots advocacy by submitting your best biking and walking photos to the Alliance for Biking & Walking’s People Powered Movement Photo Contest and enter to win an all-expense-paid 10-day bike tour of Tuscany (airfare, meals, and bicycle included courtesy of Vermont Bicycle Tours) and a year’s supply of Clif Bar's.

Additionally, the grand prize winner will choose a local biking or walking advocacy organization to receive a $1,000 Communications Grant.

Two runners-up will win a new commuter bike—a Breezer Uptown 8 or a Dahon folding commuter. First, second, and third place winners in each of the seven categories will receive prizes including Rickshaw bags, Planet Bike gear, and Clif Bars. Winning photos will be published in the 2010 March/April issue of Momentum Magazine.

The contest, which runs from September 1 – December 11, is seeking high quality and creative photos of biking and walking. Individuals can submit up to 20 photos. Public voting on all photos submitted to the contest will take place from November 1 – December 31. The finalists (the top 10 photos from each category) will go to a panel of expert judges who will determine the contest winners.

Photos submitted will benefit the Alliance’s new Biking and Walking Advocacy Photo Library, a valuable resource that will provide free high quality images of biking and walking to grassroots bicycle and pedestrian advocacy organizations.

The contest is made possible by 42 Below, Momentum Magazine, Clif Bar, Vermont Bicycle Tours, Planet Bike, Rickshaw Bagworks, Bicycle Times, Breezer, Dahon, Cycle California! Magazine, Funes Design, and JPG Magazine.
