Am I Invisible 2014
Bicycle Utopia has launched an Open Call for photography and photography-based art on the theme of complete streets and bike safety. Am I Invisible? A Portrait of New York City Bicyclists celebrates the diversity and unique style of New York City bicyclists, and subtly advocates for safe streets.
Everyone is welcome to submit their images at bicycleutopianyc.com from now until February 28, 2014. A portion of each entry fee will be donated to Recycle-A-Bicycle.
“Am I Invisible? highlights the diversity of people who cycle. It is a celebration of those who use the bicycle on a daily basis. The images inspire us to think beyond the stereotypical images of racing professionals, messengers or advocates. They inspire us to recognize the value of the cyclist in relationship to the motorist and pedestrian,” said Karen Overton, Executive Director of Recycle-A-Bicycle.
The five best images will be awarded a $200 gift certificate to redeem in participating bike shops. The selection will be made by a panel of judges drawn from the art and transportation communities. All entrants receive a 10% discount at participating bike shops until March 31, 2014, and are eligible to win raffle prizes, including a bikes from Brooklyn Cruiser and Van Moof, ABUS locks, Diana cameras and more. The winners will be announced on April 8 at the opening of the Am I Invisible? Exhibition at the Old Stone House. All the images submitted will be displayed at bicycleutopianyc.com and will be included in the exhibition at The Old Stone House & Washington Park from April 8 – June 3, 2014.
