This gallery presents the collection of photos submitted for the World Of Signage Photo Contest by the readers of Smashing Magazine. We received over 2,500+ photos from our readers across the globe, and present a selection of the most interesting photos in the overview below.
The topic of this gallery is Warning and Danger signs, signs that grab the attention of bystanders and alert them to any dangers ahead with their explicit content. Please notice: each photo has a certain license, provided in the description of the photo. Before using the images for private or commercial projects, make sure that the license allows you to do so. Also, you can click on the photos for a larger preview.
Please feel free to take a look at other submissions as well (links to other galleries are listed in the end of this gallery).

"The arabic text in the sign, roughly translated, means “forbidden for people who don’t skid/slide” – bearing in mind that the word ski is used almost universally as a transliterated phonetic equivalent in European languages; but here, they don’t transliterate the sound ski.."
