Association Opens 2017 ‘Faces’ Photographic Competition

AASHTO is taking applications through July 28 for the 2017 "Faces of Transportation" awards, a photographic competition open to employees from state departments of transportation.

That competition highlights images of people designing, constructing, using and enjoying the nation's transportation systems.

The competition will award $500 cash prizes to the winners of both the Best Overall Photograph that will be determined by a panel of judges, and to the People's Choice award to be determined by online voting.

AASHTO's Communications Division will announce the two winners during the Aug. 20-24 TransComm 2017 meeting in Denver of the Subcommittee on Transportation Communications.

The association said the 2017 Faces competition comes after a year's hiatus since the 2015 round of awards. Meanwhile, "we've retooled, revamped and reorganized" the contest, said a notice on the dedicated website.

The notice said that in the 2017 version "we have opened up the categories to be much more focused on transportation subjects." It urged photo-takers to "Get out there. Take some great photos . . . Free up your creativity. Show us the wonderful faces that make transportation across our beautiful nation. Enter today!"
