Aline Bastin Photography Contest

In 2017 CER invited its member companies to participate in the 5th edition of the European Railway Photography Contest, renamed in memory of our tragically departed colleague and friend.

The theme of the contest was: "Rail - transporting people and goods across borders".

Our thanks to all who participated! The 12 winning entries are displayed below.


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.
