Anthill's new film 'Follow Me' is all about having fun on your bike and so we wanted this contest to be fun too. We're pretty stoked on the idea - hopefully it will give you a chance to come up with some funny, crazy, unique ideas of your own. Looking forward to seeing the results.

Here's the idea... Download the "Follow Me" logo, print it, trace it, draw it... whatever you want and take pictures of the logo in funny, unexpected places. Submit the photo to Pinkbike. Send it to your friends and get them to 'vote' for your photo by faving it on Pinkbike. The top 10 entries with the most faves will be entered into the final round, where the Anthill Crew will select the best 'Follow Me' logo placement photo. The winner will get a brand new 2010 Giant Faith 0 - the same ride Kurt Sorge's been using in his segment for "Follow Me". As an added bonus every photo submitted will also be entered to win weekly draw prizes courtesy of Shimano and PRO Components.

How it works:
  1. Download the Follow Me logo
  2. Print, copy, draw, trace, build the logo anyway you want and put it somewhere... preferably somewhere funny, where lots of people will see it, in a way that's relevant to the film concept, hard to get to, unexpected, etc... (see judges criteria below)
  3. Take a photo of your "Follow Me" logo placement
  4. Upload as many different photos as you want to the Pinkbike Follow Me Gallery before March 12th, 2010
  5. Try and get as many faves as possible


Here's an example of a shot we did when the Olympic Torch passed through Squamish... hopefully it will give you an idea of the kind of stuff we're looking for:

The top 10 photos with the most faves will be judged by the Anthill crew - Darcy Wittenburg, Darren McCullough, Colin Jones, Jonathan Schramm and Sterling Lorence. Each judge will award photos points based on the factors we're looking for some cool logo placements. The photo with the highest total score will win the Giant Faith 0.

Photos will be scored (from 1 to 5) based on these factors:
  • Relevance: best representation of the film concept (don't know what "Follow Me" is about... go HERE)
  • Location: best places the logo shows up in
  • Reproduction: best ways the logo is printed, drawn, traced, built, etc...
  • Exposure: the highest level of exposure for one placement - the more eyeballs the better
  • Funny: making us laugh is good
  • Originality: best unexpected, unique use of the logo

A few rules:
  • Don't break any laws or damage any property
  • Photoshopping is ok to put up, but not really what we're looking for (i.e. a Photoshop photo will not win)
  • Photos that are faved multiple times by their own creator will be disqualified (IP tracking in effect)
  • Enter as many times as you want to increase odds of winning (one photo = one entry)
