A committee representing both organizations named two winning photos Wednesday from a group of finalists culled from 169 submissions. Both contest winners will receive a 30-day MetroCard, valued at a whopping $104.
“New York is an unusual city where there’s always a photo opportunity if you just take a second and look around,” Sabrina Porter, winner of the “Good Transit Scene” category, said in a press release.
John Wehmeyer, whose photo depicts an out-of-order “assistance intercom,” won in the “Bad Transit Scene” category.
“Although I like to think that the MTA does a great job overall with one of the biggest public transportation systems in the world, seeing something like this — in a station that has already had its human clerk removed — is a bit unnerving, to say the least,” Wehmeyer said.
