A Cycle Chic Photo Contest
The Alliance for Biking and Walking is having a photo contest. You can enter a total of twenty photos for one or all seven of the categories. The grand prize is a 10-day all-expense paid bike tour of Tuscany and a $1,000 grant for an Alliance organization of your choice! The second place winner will receive a Breezer Uptown 8 and a goodie bag which, of course, is a messenger bag filled with cool stuff. The third place winner recerives a Dahon Mu P24 folding bike. "There are also first, second, and third place prizes in each of seven categories: Biking, Walking, Biking and Walking, Complete Streets, Advocates in Action, Youth, Inspirational." I love the fact that one of the criteria for photos is that they "represent[s] the everyday [their emphasis] cyclist or walker."
According to the rules, you don't have to reside in North America to enter the contest, but your photos must portray people, places, and things located in North America. Also, they might make some "limitations" to your prize if you're an overseas winner; I suppose that allows them to award you something less difficult or expensive to ship.
You don't have to join anything or pay any fees to enter and the last day for submissions is November 31, 2009. If you enter please let me know so I can cheer for you and if you win please send along a triumphant looking shot of yourself with your prize.
