Friends of the Earth Malta Car Free Day photo competition
|Email item||Print item||
Friends of the Earth Malta launched its Photo Competition “Car free Adventures” as part of the national activities being held locally pn September the 16th with the support of MEPA. For this competition, FoE Malta is inviting people from all walks of life to share their individual experience with alternative means of transport in Malta. These could be anything from using the bus service, bicycle, walking or maybe even using some exotic vehicle like a donkey cart.
Car free day isn’t just about one day without any cars or motor traffic on our roads. It’s a day when we’re all given the chance to consider how the negative aspects of too much traffic weigh down all our lives. More than that, it’s an opportunity to think of better, smarter ways for individual traffic to be organised in the future.
Whatever mode of transportation people decide to use, they are encouraged to let us know about their picturesque experience with car freeness. The submitted pictures should be story-telling, but one can expand on this pictorial story with a short caption of up to 30 words and with a relevant image title.
Besides the fun of sharing car free photos with the world, Friends of the Earth Malta will also be awarding prizes for the best three pictures and stories: 1st price: €150 voucher from a bike shop; 2nd price: €75 voucher from a bike shop + a 30 day pass from Arriva (worth €26); 3rd price: a 90 day pass from Arriva (worth €72)
“Car free Adventures” Photo Competition opened for submissions on Sunday the 2nd September 2012, with entries accepted until noon on Friday the 21st September 2012. Late submissions will not be considered.
Friends of the Earth Malta is also encouraging the public to participate in other events being organised on car free day, including an adult training session aimed at those who do not know how to cycle organised by the Bicycle Advocacy Group at Ta’ Qali and a biking activity by Inspire Foundation.
These events might also serve as an opportunity for participants to come up with a winning photo for the photo competition.
