Footprints - voting underway
Voting is now underway in the Road Safety GB ‘Footprints’ photography competition, with the finalists’ destiny in the hands of the general public.
The shortlist of finalists is now showcased on the Footprints website and the general public cab cast their vote for the winner.
The competition for budding photographers was developed by Road Safety GB to support the Second UN Global Road Safety Week (6-12 May) and its theme of pedestrian safety.
Footprints challenged young people aged 11-18 years to snap away on the theme of pedestrian safety. Road safety teams were encouraged to promote the competition in their local area.
The winning entry will be used to create a road safety poster, and the winner and runner up will both receive Panasonic camera equipment.
The public vote will close at midnight on Sunday 12 May and the winner will be announced shortly after that date.
