The European Traffic Police Network (TISPOL) with support of the European Commission organised a competition for Best photography within the project EDWARD - European Day Without a Road Death. The goal of the project was to implement activities in the period from 16 to 22 September, during European Mobility Week, that would make road users think about the risks they face, the risks they may pose to others and what they can do to reduce those risks.
The prize for best photograph in this 2018 EDWARD Photo contest went to Bitola Municipal Council for Road Safety. The winner will be invited to the next Excellence in Road Safety Awards in 2019.
Among the organisers of events, there were national governments, NGOs, public agencies, charities, schools and universities. Events of different sizes and in different venues included information and communication activities, workshops, conferences and competitions that raised awareness of risks for road users and promoted safe behavior and compliance with traffic rules. The Road Safety Day interactive map gave these projects higher visibility, and all of them were eligible to participate in a photo contest.
