In the first half of June 2010 the City of Gent launched its very first walking campaign. With the motto ‘everything in Gent is in walking distance’ the city council wants people to take a stroll. To reinforce that message, people are invited to take part in the photo competition.

When you walk, you see more and you experience more. And why not take a picture of it? People can upload three pictures of their favourite personal ‘Foot moment’. Through social media like Facebook, Twitter, etc. votes can and will be collected to win one of the valuable prices.The winning photos were exhibited on Car Free Day in September 2010.
