SEND IN YOUR GREAT PHOTOS!Optimize Mobility, Preserve Infrastructure, by Catherine Higgins.
A photo contest is providing an opportunity to showcase the people who use and improve our state transportation system – but hurry, time is short!
Face it, the UDOT family, including state employees and private sector partners, is full of dedicated people who enhance the quality of life in our state by improving mobility, maintaining infrastructure and building for the future. Do you have photos that showcase those people doing their important work? If so, the AASHTO Faces of Transportation photo contest may be a great way to share those images.
“Faces of Transportation” is a yearly contest that has a monetary prize attached. UDOT is heading a coordinated effort to submit photos for the contest, but the deadline is approaching quickly.
For the first time, contest organizers are asking for photos that fit into three themes:
- Building the Future – showing people planning, designing and maintaining the transportation network.
- On the Road – showing long distance travel opportunities afforded by the transportation network.
- Taking a Ride—showing people using transportation networks to commute, run errands or to discover new places.
Please send digital photos to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, July 25. Digital files must be a minimum of 600 dpi quality or better. All entries must be accompanied by a completed entry form. A text file with the information and caption should also be included. For assistance, contact Catherine Higgins at 801-803-9413 or by email.
Photos selected for the contest will be highlighted on the UDOT Blog and Flickr.
