NEW YORK — Subway workers angered over what they say is a rat infestation in their workplace are holding a photo contest for the "nastiest" shot of a rodent, with a grand prize of a monthly transit pass.

Commuters, who frequently see rats on subway platforms and tracks, are urged to upload photos to www.ratfreesubways.com, created by the Transport Workers Union Local 100, the city's largest transit union.

Visitors to the "Rate my Rat" section of the site can vote on the most repulsive vermin.
