1st Annual Bicycle Travel Photo Contest
Adventure Cycling invites you to enter your most stunning photos — highlighting the beauty, adventure, and inspiration of bicycle travel — in our 1st Annual Bicycle Travel Photo Contest.
We are looking for striking digital images that capture the spirit, wonder and adventure of bicycle touring and travel. These images can be taken anywhere in the world. Photos that focus on the scenery of an area must include some connection to or indication of bike travel. We are especially interested in images that showcase the wide range of bike-touring experiences: road and dirt riding, rural and urban settings, scenery, people, and the emotions.
The winner’s image will be printed in the March 2010 issue of Adventure Cyclist magazine — reaching over 50,000 people worldwide.
The winner’s image will be featured on Adventure Cycling’s website, adventurecycling.org, which is visited by more than a million people annually.
Photo captions must accompany all submissions, and should included the subject of the image, the location the image was taken, and the name of the photographer(s). Please clearly label all photos to assist judges in determining eligibility.
Each photo must be submitted electronically, by one (and only one) of the following two methods:
Via Flickr™ — If you have multiple photos to enter in the competition, please consider using this method to enter the contest. After logging in, upload your images using the mechanism provided. If you are not already a member of Adventure Cycling’s Contests group on Flickr™, join by clicking "Join this Group?" on the group’s homepage. Browse to the image you wish to submit for the contest, and use the "Send to Group" function to add your images to Adventure Cycling’s Photo Contest photo pool. Once added to the group, tag each photo with Adventure09. If you do not upload your photo to Adventure Cycling’s Contests group on Flickr™, or do not tag your photo with an appropriate tag, it will not be considered for the competition.
Via Email Submission Process — If you choose not to use Flickr™ to submit your image, you may email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. Send a low-resolution version of the image (72dpi) along with the subject of the image, the location the image was taken, and the name of the photographer(s). You will also need to be able to provide a print quality high-resolution version of the photo upon request, no less than 2250 pixels wide and no less than 3000 pixels tall, preferably at 300 dpi.
