It s coming the 2015 Photo of the year contest.


The 5th annual Pinkbike Photo of the Year Contest voting is underway. The winner will join John Wellburn, Toby Cowley, Sterling Lorence and Christoph Laue in the PB Photo of the Year Hall of Fame and they could walk away with $5,000.

How Does it Work?

From thousands of nominated photos, 32 have been selected to pit against each other in a college basketball bracket-like showdown. At this point, it is up to you, the users, to vote on the match-ups. The photos with the most votes will move on to the next round. So 32 photos will narrow down to 16, then 8, 4, 2 until there is a single photo deemed the 2015 Trek Photo of the Year Powered by SRAM.

Christoph Laue
We shot this picture on our trip to Utah for Red Bull and a German TV show Wild Ones - Junge Helden . Due to the strict time schedule we had only three hours to build this hip in the afternoon and three hours to shoot the picture in the sunrise the next morning. But the sweat and tears were definitely worth it. It was a special experience for us to take the first freeride shot in Monument Valley. -

 Dammit, second round in and I can't stick to my votes. Stupid photographers making it so hard to choose.

 Vote what you want but at least make sure you vote for Sean Lee's pic on every round, that's who I think is gonna win this year!

 Michael Cerveny and the shadow man.

 How did that window photo from Valparaiso not make it? That stuff is pure gold.

 i dont knonw much about photography, but i thought that would make it into semi finals easily

 Too many good pictures. Different tastes. Etc.

 It was a great photo (especially timing wise) but it didn't give me that mountainbike feel. Many of the shots above make me want to take my bike out. The window pic not so much.

 @MegaMonkey A lot of photos make me want to go out and ride, but this one made me laugh, which is pretty unusual for a bike photo, that's why I like it so much. And yeah, the timing is unreal.

 The window picture was awesome! It made me think of sitting at home or work and dreaming about biking instead of work. Bummed to see it go but all well.

 I thought it would be cool to wake up and have that be the first thing you see.

 It took me an awful lot of time to find the bikers in Steve Shannons photo...
  • 4 0
 & how are the bikers in the reflection but not visible on the actual horizon? Does not compute in my brain...
  • 8 0
 The point of reflection on the water is also the location from which the reflection would otherwise be visible. So rather than the perspective of the camera on the near side shoreline, the reflection affords the viewer a second perspective from the surface of the water itself... from where the riders are silhouetted atop a much closer shoreline horizon. The angle of incidence is the angle of reflection...

 Right, they're in the dark.

 Alfaro nailed it.

 Cerveny.. Looks like an architectural portfolio. Until you see that finer tailwhip. Great concept.

 How did this sick picture not make it!

 The photo quality is just not there. Nice capture, poor quality. That's how.
  • 2 1
 Yeah I thought for sure that photo would go a long way. Poor quality?
  • 5 2
 Definitely not seeing the poor quality. It looks reasonably sharp without mch noise and the composition is nice.
  • 2 1
 Its a good shot and its composed well, all foggy and stuff. But there are some aperture spots, and some out of focus grass and stuff, reflection or moisture that blurs the image. Many of the pics are of very cool stuff but not the best image quality. They also all look good on a phone, but some when enlarged not as good. All in all a bunch of great pics at awesome locations!
  • 3 1
 .. plus the colors are matching which made it outstanding imo

 I like that shot ^ better than the first one.

 I feel like those rampage photos of Andreu should be in this for sure!!! They were like that Suzuki photo without the suzuki in it.

 I hope the guy in Joey Schusler's photo had a parachute.
  • 7 1
 There is a video to that photo. It also has boobs in it so you might consider watching it.
  • 3 2
 no parachute needed, the SB6C can fly on his own ... with fox switch infinity, to infinity and beyond ! Big Grin

 @ridethree I'm still laughing at that comment. Joe Dirt comes to mind.

 Consistently the same picture voted every year. Sweet skid bro.

 Yeah I really hope dust clouds don't win. They're cool but they've kind of been done to death now.
  • 3 0
 it will be a roost poy, as always, because most of people voting are kids who like skids, dust explosion and commenting "braaap" on every picture. It's not national geo, it's pinkbike
  • 2 0
 Exactly, in my opinion the best shots are voted off already. Not to take away from anything the any of the remaining shots as I know the effort that can go into them.

 I found this second round easier to choose. Third round of voting will suck big time.

 as long as the winner is a natural photo and not some staged BS ill be happy

Looks great on my iPhone, cheers

 Matchup 3 was harder than choosing to know when you will die or how you will die
  • 2 1
 Michael Cerveny shadow man is quite the shot. It might not be the best trick. Although it is a incredible photo.
  • 1 0
 Wow, I legit can't decide. There are a few I could rule out but non I could actually choose...
  • 1 0
 Matchup 6 in this round had to be the hardest choice for me. Both great photos.
  • 1 0
 Koenig or Laue for me. Doesn't sound like that's going to be the case though.

 putting Koenig vs Cerveney was an act of cruelty

 where the hell is that landing (joey schusler)??
  • 1 0
 He lands at the bottom in the valley (Base Jump + bike)
  • 1 0
 & how the hell is that possible! Does he jettison the bike into river? or pop a separate chute for the bike? Certainly he couldn't stay sitting on that 30 pound machine all the way down! Could he?
  • 3 0
 He lands on his bike, drops the chute, and rides away in the sunset.

Watch this to see how he did it: www.bikemag.com/videos/video-mountain-bike-base-jump/#fblPmBcdz1mBZEXC.97
