Snap a photo of a Ford vehicle in Britain and you could spend the rest of the year in a sporty new Ford Fiesta ST.
Ford Motor Company Limited, established in Britain in 1904, is this year celebrating the 40th birthday of the country's most popular van - the iconic Transit. To mark more than 100 years as a leading motoring brand and 40 years of success for the Transit, photographers everywhere are invited to capture their own face of Ford.
The Ford Transit has been Britain's top-selling van since its launch in 1965. Focus has been Britain's most popular car since it was launched in 1999. Fiesta is number one among private buyers. As car and commercial vehicle market leader, Ford and Britain go together like fish and chips.
Photographers of any standard are challenged to enter a photograph of any Ford vehicle in a setting which reflects the company's unique relationship with Britain. The prize is a six-month loan of a 2.0 litre Fiesta ST. The ST's 150PS Duratec engine, lowered suspension and sports-tuned steering – all riding on monster 17in, 11-spoke alloy wheels - add up to driving at its most exciting. This £13,595 performance package on six months loan is top prize in Ford of Britain's photo competition.
Professional and amateur photographers alike are welcome to enter. Some entries may be historic, featuring heritage vehicles in attention-grabbing places. Ford's brief is wide open to your interpretation and so get looking for never-seen-before Ford images. Photographers must be over the age of 25 for insurance purposes.
Closing date is Wednesday 31 August 2005. Entries should be sent to: Ford Motor Company Limited, Ford Photographic Competition, Room 1/468, Eagle Way, Brentwood Essex CM13 3BW or to firstname.lastname@example.org.Published 18 May 2005
