It is time again for a free and non-commercial ARL photo contest - this time on the occasion of the 2023 ARLCongress  “Towards a viable and mobile future”!

The ARL is looking for your personal view on a socially just and ecologically responsible mobility – a multi-layered theme and we are excited to receive your impressions, illustrations and ideas, but also your criticism and perspective on contradictions!

What does mobility have to do with social justice? How is mobility related to topics like sustainability, gender or accessibility? And why does COVID-19 have an impact on all of that?

Share with us what comes to mind when you think of these questions and what you would like to see in a mobile future. We look forward to your ideas!

Participation is open to all! Please upload your picture via the online entry form with a short title and/or a suitable quotation by 20 May 2023 at the latest. You may submit a maximum of two photos.

We will exhibit a selection of photos at the 2023 ARL Congress in Leipzig from 22 to 23 June 2023 and on our Knowledge and Communication Platform at
