Send Us Your Photos!
APTA is accepting entries through Oct. 2 for the 10th Annual Public Transportation Takes Us There Photo Invitational. Photos from APTA members can cover a range of subjects that depict public transportation’s significance, value, and benefits of opportunity, access, freedom, and mobility. And there’s no fee to enter!
For example, winning photos may show people benefiting from public transportation as they travel to work, appointments, school, events, or countless other destinations. They might depict public transportation vehicles in action with the community—such as participating in a charity event, or they could show transit employees in a variety of natural working conditions. Specific subjects to think about: seasonal activities, promotions, special events, and diverse weather conditions. In other words, a photo of a bus in the middle of a major snowstorm picking up passengers could possibly be the picture used for December in APTA’s calendar!
All entries must be submitted by mail and include a CD containing all photos (high resolution, 300 dpi), along with a color printout of each photo on the CD. Entries must be clearly marked with the entrant’s name, company name, address, phone number, and e-mail, as well as the photographer’s name for photo credit. Entries with people prominently featured must be accompanied by a signed photo release, available at the APTA web site.
All photos entered in the invitational become part of APTA’s photo library, meaning they may be used in a variety of forms besides the annual APTA-sponsored calendar.
