GREEN DREAM PHOTO CONTEST: THE WINNERS!

On the 29th of October 2013 the Green Dream Team announced the winners of the Green Dream Photo Contest. The Project’s partners, under the supervision of Messina Municipality, launched Green Dream Contest on the 1st of September in order to foster the creativity and awareness of European citizens about urban mobility issues, encouraging them to depict the impact of urban mobility on the areas, districts and environment where they live, work, study and travel. During the contest, Green Dream Team received over 50 photos but only 31, which abided by the requirements, had been admitted to the social contest.

On the 30th of September, the Stage I of the photo contest had been concluded, including the internet voting system through Sustainable Urban Mobility Facebook website. The first 10 photos that received the highest score had been evaluated by the Technical Committee, composed by Sum project partners. In this context, all Partners cooperated by voting and scoring the first 10 photos selected by citizens indicating a score on 3 main issues: relevance of the photo's central theme with respect to the project objectives; originality and creativity of the photo.
