Inspiring the world to enjoy sustainable tourism on rail

As part of the European Year of Rail, UIC is organising a photo competition through its TopRail group (rail tourism) under the theme “My Secret Rail Spots”.

The aim of the competition is for railway employees to be ambassadors of their railways and to share their favourite rail spots in order to inspire passengers to hop on a train and get to know these places once it becomes possible to travel again.

Participants (UIC member employees) have six months, until 10 September, to upload a picture of their secret railway spot to the PollUnit platform.

The photo with the most “likes” by the end date wins the competition.

The 12 photos with the most “likes” will be used to produce a UIC TopRail calendar for 2022 and a selection will be published on the UIC Instagram page.

The winners of the competition will be announced on 26 October during the TopRail Forum.
