Aline Bastin Photography Contest

In 2016 CER invited its member companies to participate in the 4th edition of the European Railway Photography Contest, renamed in memory of our tragically departed colleague and friend.

The theme of the contest was: "Promising future for railways"

12 winning entries were selected to exhibit at the European Railway Award 10th Anniversary and the CER General Assembly on 7 and 8 February 2017.


Held on an annual basis, the contest seeks to find the 12 best pictures highlighting the modern, environmentally-friendly and human dimensions of railways. Winners each receive a 200 euros prize.


The contest is open to all residents of the 28 Member States of the European Union, Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Georgia, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland, Turkey and Ukraine. Only photos taken in the above-mentioned countries can be submitted.
