Alliance Photo Contest Kicks Off

Published August 31, 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 courtesy of VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations.

In addition to the bike adventure, which includes airfare, meals, and bicycle, the grand prize winner will receive a year's supply of Clif Bars and their local biking or walking advocacy organization will 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 Barss. Winning photos will be published in the 2010 March/April issue of Momentum Magazine.

The contest, which runs from September 1 – December 11 2009, 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, 2009. 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, VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations, Planet Bike, Rickshaw Bagworks, Bicycle Times, Breezer, Dahon, Cycle California! Magazine, Bicycle Retailer and Industry News, Funes Design, and JPG Magazine.
