Amtrak Launches Photo Contest for 2005 Wall Calendar
It's time to pull out the camera and take your shot at having your
photograph featured on the 2005 Amtrak wall calendar.
You and rail fans everywhere are invited to enter the 2005 "Picture
Our Train" photo contest. The First Prize winner will receive a $1,000
travel voucher and photo credit on the calendar. The Second through
Fifth Prize winners will also receive travel vouchers.
To win, submit an original color photograph featuring an Amtrak train
with the current Amtrak logo and livery visible.
The contest is open to legal residents of the United States, 18 years
of age or older. All Amtrak employees and their families are eligible,
except the Calendar Contest Review Panel and Judges, Amtrak Marketing
employees (as listed on the company's organizational chart 10.2),
Amtrak Corporate Communications employees (chart 10.3). (Employees at
Amtrak advertising agencies and their families are also not eligible.)
Detailed entry rules can be found on the Amtrak Intranet home page by
clicking on the link found under Latest News (only accessible to
Amtrak employees and others with authorized Intranet access). The rules
will be posted on the Amtrak Internet soon and published in the
June 2004 issue of Amtrak Ink. The contest ends July 30, 2004.
SAFETY FIRST! As always, Amtrak reminds all contestant participants
to stay out of danger – stay away from tracks and the railroad
right-of-way. Remember, trains move quickly and quietly. This contest
is not about putting yourself in danger. Do not trespass on
railroad property or on private property adjacent to
the railroad. Do not climb or approach railroad structures, towers,
or wires. Stay in public access areas, and away from railroad structures
and moving equipment – in stations, on sidewalks, in parking
lots or on highway sidings—stay out of danger. Remember, tracks,
trestles, yards and equipment are private property – trespassers
are subject to arrest and fines.
