They include volunteer work by amateur and professional graphic artists who support this Project with their talent, and works produced of their own inclination by governmental or independent media organizations.
In addition, you will find below a link to a Google Share folder of anti dooring stickers, posters and other graphics produced for prior cyclist road safety campaigns around the globe. Also you will find a DropBox link which contains many newer images from the onset of this project, some also here on this page or in the Gallery, but many others not yet included.

Appeal! A Grand Graphic Challenge to create 'ISO' standard signage for 'Dutch'Reach
Dear Graphic Designer, Illustrator, Artist, Videographer &/or Visually Talented Reader,
Might you have ideas for road signage to 'say' Dutch Reach at a glance?
A universal sign is needed to get drivers and riders to use the far hand reach method to avoid doorings and injury when opening and exiting.
Other graphics and media are also needed to teach kids of all age groups, for driver manuals and training, bumper and parking meter stickers, posters, presentations, billboards, publications, etc.
If you are so inspired, please add your talent to this anti dooring cause! We will share forward your quality files with other activists around the globe.
New Dutch Reach graphics & slogans for stickers on bikes, meters, car bumpers, window decals and refrigerators & kids! etc. will also be a great help for community campaigns everywhere.
Please also add your work to Wikimedia Commons, which will put it securely in the public domain. And use keywords including: Dutch Reach, doored, dooring, getting hit by car door, bicycle, crash, accident, car dooring etc., so it can be readily found by search.
Likewise, if you find other old or new instances of far hand reach media not already found below, please kindly send such links and files to the Dutch Reach Project at: Contact.
Thank you! - mc.
Dutch Reach Makes Vigilance Physical
EL PERIODICO DEPORTES: GIF animation screen shots & composites show 'Dutch Reach' versus 'Near Hand' habit.
"Dutch Reach": la forma de abrir la puerta del coche que puede evitar la caída de un ciclista. El método, con la mano contraria a la puerta, fuerza a mirar atrás para comprobar si viene alguien, evitando el punto muerto del retrovisor. - El Periodico Deporte: 19 June 2017, by ASIER JIMÉNEZ LARZÁBAL / Barcelona, Spain.

DUTCH REACH IMAGE SERIES FROM CBC MANITOBA GIF ANIMATIONS
CBC Manitoba's GIF News animations which are the source of the images below, are themselves excellent teaching videos. They actively show the field of vision advantage of the Dutch Reach's Swivel & Look technique for detecting on-coming cyclists, or other traffic.
The screen shots below were captured from videos in a January 10, 2017 news report by CBC Manitoba. The featured video, "Dutch Reach Explained" combines both reporting and a short animated clip. Further down in the article appears a second animated GIF News clip representing a single car and cyclist.
Sets of screen shot series from each video clip can be viewed and downloaded using the Share links beneath.
Note on UK, AU versions: PNG files of screen shots were flipped left to right to produce sets of images suitable for the UK and other Left Side of Road driving countries. Hence the reversed green check marks.
