From now through the end of April, Boston's transit authority is accepting design submissions on individual aspects of the map as well as complete renderings. Winners will be selected for their creativity, aesthetic presentation, and informative quality, and announced in mid-May as part of National Transportation Week.

Why would you want to contribute when they will own all the submissions and you won't be compensated?
