Faces of Transportation Photo and Video Contest

AASHTO Announces ‘Faces of Transportation’ Photography and Video Contest

This year’s competition, themed “Transportation in America,” includes seven awards. Five will be presented in the photography section and two prizes will be awarded in the video portion of competition.

The videos (one winner in each category), as selected by AASHTO, will each be awarded $150 cash prizes. All entries must be received by July 31, 2014. Judging will begin on August 8, 2014.

Nation at a Crossroads

The "Nation at a Crossroads" is a web-based infographic, mobile app and printed brochure that provides a national perspective on surface transportation investments. It also provides state-level information to help tell the story of how federal funding affects transportation investment priorities.

The information included in the infographic was collected from AASHTO members as well as industry sources such as the US Department of Transportation, TRIP, American Public Transportation Association, and the American Society of Civil Engineers.
