ITF Photo Competition

ITF PHOTOGRAPHY PRIZE 2022

An annual contest celebrating millions of transport workers around the world.
Transport workers are the lifeblood of our societies. Toiling at all hours of the day, often far away from families and loved ones, we deliver the food people eat, get commuters safely to work, and supply the energy needed for our essential services and homes.

Our first ever photography competition celebrates the triumphs and challenges of being a transport worker today, in all sectors, industries and supply chains.

The inaugural prize will be awarded to the most striking photograph taken by a transport worker, and the one that best showcases how we keep the world moving.

SUBMISSION
GUIDELINES

We're looking for striking and interesting photography to give people an insight into the living and working conditions of transport workers.
This competition is free to enter and open to all serving transport workers aged 18 and over. Each entrant can submit a maximum of three images.

Photographs can be submitted in any style, from portraiture of workers, to photos of people at work to aerial and drone photography of transport-related scenes -so long as the photography is of the highest quality and largest file size possible.

Make sure you leave yourself enough time to get appropriate consents from people in your photographs and where this is useful, to write captions and descriptions to accompany your photos.
Technical considerations:
Make sure you have evidence to confirm your status as a transport worker. For example, a membership document, ID badge or recommendation letter from a recognised employer with your name clearly visible.

We need print quality images so please ensure that you provide the largest possible file size when you save and upload (e.g. Save 'Actual size' on your phone.)
