Alstom is launching a major photo competition on the Internet on 11 August. Anyone can submit a photo that illustrates their experience of travelling with Alstom. The photo, of a person or a group, can be taken on a train, a tram, a metro or when setting off for a journey in a station or on a platform.
To take part, just post the photo via Twitter, Instagram or Iconosquare (http://iconosquare.com/contests/withalstom) using the hashtag #withAlstom. The community can vote for their favourite photos, and the 50 entries with the most votes will be presented to a jury who will select the winners. They will receive a Leica camera. A selection of the best images will be on display from 23 September on Alstom's booth at InnoTrans, the biggest global trade show dedicated to the rail sector, which is held every two years in Berlin.
