Snap a Fiesta ST150 For 6 Months

Wed, 18 May 2005
Ford Motor Company Limited, established in Britain in 1904, is this
year celebrating the 40th birthday of the country's most popular van, the Transit. To mark more than 100 years as a leading motoring brand and 40 years of success for the Transit, photographers everywhere are invited to capture their own face of Ford.

The Ford Transit has been Britain's top-selling van since its launch
in 1965. The Focus has been Britain's most popular car since it was
launched in 1999. The Fiesta is number one among private buyers. As car and commercial vehicle market leader, Ford and Britain go together
like fish and chips.

Photographers of any standard are challenged to enter a photograph
of any Ford vehicle in a setting which reflects the company's unique
relationship with Britain. The prize is a six-month loan of a 2.0
litre Fiesta ST. The ST's 150PS Duratec engine, lowered suspension
and sports-tuned steering - all riding on monster 17in, 11-spoke
alloy wheels - add up to driving at its most exciting. This £13,595
performance package on six months loan is top prize in Ford of
Britain's photo competition.

Professional and amateur photographers alike are welcome to enter.
Some entries may be historic, featuring heritage vehicles in
attention-grabbing places. Ford's brief is wide open to your
interpretation and so get looking for never-seen-before Ford images.

Photographers must be over the age of 25 for insurance purposes.

Closing date is Wednesday 31 August 2005. Entries should be sent
