GoPro best line

You. Your bike. Any line. Anywhere.

GoPro and Pinkbike have teamed up once again to bring you the GoPro of the World: Best Line Contest!

Sending some sweet jumps? Riding a rowdy line with your friends? Taking your bike where no bike has gone before? Well, this year we are bringing you more chances to WIN! Contest runs July 1st - Nov 30th, 2016 and one Grand Prize winner will take home $15,000.




Judges will now select the 10 best edits from each month. The Pinkbike audience will vote on these 10, and the edit with the most votes takes home the first prize of $1,200. Second place will receive $800, and third wins a sweet GoPro Hero4 Black Edition. At the end of the five months, all top three monthly edits will go into a bracket challenge and an overall winner will be selected. Whoever makes it through to the end will take home $15,000 in cold hard cash. Will it be you?

Dates:
July 1, 2016 - November 30, 2016

Location:
Planet Earth

Judging Criteria:
• Composition and Framing (25%)
• Perspective and Degree of Difficulty of Shooting (25%)
• Performance and Style (25%)
• Overall Beauty and Lighting (25%)

Prizing
• $15,000 Grand Prize
• $10,000 in Secondary Cash Prizes

Some updates to the contest this time around:

• More people to receive prizes! Instead of five monthly $1,000 winners, we're doling out $2,000 and a camera each month to three monthly winners.
• Judges won't be selecting the monthly winners, but instead selecting the nominees from which the users will select their top three winners.
• The length of the video submission is now recommended instead of a rule. Recommended length is 2-3 minutes.
• Changes to judging criteria

 They should really not allow GoPro sponsored riders to enter, it defeats the purpose of the contest.
  • + 79
 Rule 4. Make sure your video is from an invite-only competition.

 I was not impressed by the winner last year at all
  • + 1
 Those PROs earned their merit through tons of sweat and blood. I'm happy for them to win the contest. On the other hand I think message of this contest is to motivate people to become better and better at everything they do.

 @shaborider: the message is to buy a gopro

 @nikifor88: Hey, it is not a subject to joke around on the community. I don't know from where you think I'm a terrorist but I assume you do not know that ISS stands for International Space Station? You should try treck session jokes, they are much easier to handle
  • + 1
 @nikifor88:
You do realize ISS I'd the abbreviation for International Space Station?
Cool your jets there bro.

 @lifeofloon: yeah right, you'll explain that to the police couse i already reported all of you and i made screenshots, so you're f*cked, isis lovers
  • + 2
 @nikifor88:
Wow! You're really dense aren't you? I thought all those jokes about Poles where just jokes. Something is seriously wrong with you if you're trying to turn a joke about a GoPro contest and the International Space Station into an ISIS issue.
  • - 1
 @lifeofloon: so you like to joke about poles too. thats racist. what else do you find funny? gays? vegans?disabled childen?

 So stoked to be featured in that edit!! Made it to the top 8 last year but unfortunatley lost my go pro in a fishing accident so wont be competing this year
  • + 12
 You are going to leave us hanging with this fishing story!?
  • + 12
 I made it in this video and I am just a normal dude in Utah. Not pro at all. It was literally the only video I've posted on pinkbike. Surprised the shit out of me actually.
  • + 12
 it worked.. I want to buy a Go Pro now

 Contest rules, page 4 line 8:
"Submission must not contain unsportsmanlike conduct, extraordinarily dangerous acts, or reckless acts." Big Grin isnt rampage or fest series events considered as death defying stunts? Seriously??
  • + 8
 If not ... riding a bike down the face of a dam, into the water should be considered as such.
  • + 11
 dude this was a great edit holy crap
  • + 9
 Ed Masters Rampage run? If that was shot by GoPro we'd already have a winner!
  • + 7
 Thanks for holding this again gopro! I'm gonna get some points for composition with my edit I hope.
  • + 7
 To this video, regular people contributed: Hi fives. Pros contributed: Riding footage (and some hi fives)
  • + 6
 Oh god the controversial contest is back again, the one that rates on cinematic quality but doesn't let you edit shit lol
  • + 13
 It's actaully good that you can't edit because 99% of people here know how to ride good but can't edit for shit.
  • + 6
 Depending on setting used on the camera, and the brightness outside.. you can get some awesome gopro footage that doesnt need much assistance in editing.. throw in a cool mounting angle and you can make some very high quality shots without altering colors or light levels in post..
  • + 5
 Could watch edits like that all day.!! So sick.!!
