Federal Signal is pleased to announce the launch of the second annual “My Federal Signal” Photo Contest. We invite all Company employees to submit images of their workplace or FS manufactured products. Employees are encouraged to enter original photos capturing how they see Federal Signal.
Who: Any current employee of a Federal Signal business over 18 years of age.
When: December 15, 2017 - February 15, 2018
Prizes: Federal Signal will award prizes in 3 categories:
- CEO Prize $550*
You’ve nailed it. Your image rises above the rest and showcases something about Federal Signal in a stunning and visual way that words alone cannot capture.
Employee Pride Award $175*
Your photo captures something special about what it means to be a Federal Signal employee.
- Unique Perspectives Award $175*
A most unique moment caught by one of our employees, that shares a view not commonly seen or appreciated by others.
*Prize value before required withholdings.
What to enter:
Entries may originate in any format — including, but not limited to smartphone photos, digital files, digital prints, color transparencies, color prints, or black and white prints — so long as they are submitted electronically in a .jpg, or .png form. Multiple exposures that have been combined to produce a single "High Dynamic Range" image are acceptable.
