DOT Announces Summer Streets Photo Competition
Given the heretofore undiscovered perspectives it affords, Summer Streets presents its share of photo opportunities. Making the most of them, the Department of Transportation is holding a contest for amateur shutterbugs to show off their best shots. From the Summer Streets Photo Competition press release:
In addition to first prize and children's prizes, awards will be given out in five categories, including street scenes, portraiture, landscaping and architecture, reportage and sustainable transportation. The winning photos, determined by a jury of professional photographers, photo editors, and curators, will be exhibited this fall at a photo gallery and at City bike shelters, and they also will be used to help DOT document Summer Streets for future planning and to inspire cities around the world which are considering similar events.
Pics from all three Summer Streets days are eligible. Participants may submit up to 10 images. Submissions are due by August 31, with winners to be announced mid-September. See the Summer Streets web site for submission specs.
