I'm a big walker. Because of where we live, I can walk to the grocery store, drug store, post office, gym, library, doctor's office, and the BART, which will take me into San Francisco, where I can walk some more.
The Alliance for Biking and Walking creates, strengthens, and unites state and local bicycle and pedestrian advocacy organizations. One resource its member organizations have requested is high quality images of biking and walking to use in their communications.
In response, the Alliance is holding a People Powered Movement Photo Contest. The contest will help them build a biking and walking advocacy photo library that will provide free, high quality images of biking and walking to Alliance member organizations.
Anyone can submit up to 20 images in 7 categories (biking, walking, biking and walking, complete streets, advocates in action, youth, or inspirational) for a chance to win an all-expense paid bike trip to Tuscany, and a year's supply of Clif Bars.
The two runners-up will win a Breezer Uptown 8, or a Dahon folding commuter. There are also first, second, and third place prizes in each of the seven categories. The winning images will be published in the 2010 March/April issue of Momentum Magazine. The deadline to submit your photo(s) is November 31, 2009.
