Announcing the winner of the Facebook photo contest
We are delighted to announce that Juan de Dios Ortúzar is the winner of the transport photo contest on Facebook!
Thank you to everyone who entered and voted for their favorites. It was a difficult decision as all five entries with the most votes were interesting photos; however, we liked how Juan de Dios Ortúzar’s entry combined multiple modes and we felt that it was cleverly composed to convey a serious point. Congratulations!
Competition caption: The photo shows how much space is required to transport the same number of people by car and bus
Thank you to Juan de Dios Ortúzar and to Juan Carlos Muñoz for the information they provided about the photo, which was taken in Santiago, Chile in August 2008: '… to illustrate the relevance of sharing our scarce urban space as democratic as we can, and in cases where many people want to go through the same places at the same time, cars are no doubt the worst option. This is an effort from our Bus Rapid Transit Centre of Excellence.'
