What's at stake? $10,000 Cash and $10,000+ in Prizing
The 5th annual Pinkbike Photo of the Year Contest is coming fast. 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 $10,000 cash.
Think you have a banger? This is your chance to see how you stack up against the best mountain bike photographers in the world. Just upload your shot and you can nominate up to three photos of your own or from other photographers for entry into the competition. Last year, 2956 photos were nominated and 244,372 votes were cast until ultimately only one image was chosen. This year's total is sure to be even bigger. You have until January 20th, 2016 to nominate your favorite shots. The photo of the year will now be part of the Pinkbike MTB awards with the winner grabbing not only the title but also the trophy.How Does it Work?
All photos taken and uploaded this year that are nominated by users are eligible. So upload your photos
now to enter. Each Pinkbike user can nominate up to 3 different photos into the contest (see how to nominate below
). The judges will then spend several sleepless nights narrowing the nominated photos down to 32, after which we will open things up to the public. We will pit each photo randomly against another photo in a college basketball bracket-like showdown. At this point, users will vote on the match ups and the photo with the most votes will move onto the next round. So 32 photos will narrow down to 16, then 8, 4, 2 until there is a single photo deemed 2015 Trek Photo of the Year Powered by SRAM. Deadline for nominations is January 20th, 2016.
The winner will receive a cheque for $10,000 for being chosen your favorite image of 2015.
• Everyone is eligible except for judges
• Only one photo can be selected from each photographer into the final 32
• You must be the photographer who took the photo and then have uploaded it onto your personal Pinkbike account to be eligible That's not all!
One lucky voter will be taking home a Trek Remedy 9.9
complete with the newest SRAM kit and riding gear from Bontrager.
