Submissions are now closed. Winners will be announced in the March 2013 issue of Adventure Cyclist magazine.
Adventure Cycling invites you to enter your most stunning photos — highlighting the beauty, adventure, and inspiration of bicycle travel — in our 4th Annual Bicycle Travel Photo Contest.
We're looking for beautiful photography representing the diversity and spirit of bike touring. Your original images in digital format, capturing all aspects of bike travel, are eligible for the competition.
We are especially interested in images that showcase the wide range of bike-touring experiences: Groups of cyclists, road and dirt riding, rural and urban settings, scenery, people, and emotions. This year we are particularly interested in group shots. For some examples of exceptional submissions, check out the Adventure Cyclist feature (PDF format) on last year’s winners.
The winner's image will be printed in the March 2013 issue of Adventure Cyclist magazine — reaching over 50,000 people worldwide. The image will also be featured on Adventure Cycling’s website, adventurecycling.org, which is visited by more than a million people annually. The first place winner will also receive a two-year membership with Adventure Cycling and a $100 gift certificate for the Cyclosource store. Each year, we also feature photo contest photos in our annual Bicycle Travel Calendar.
To enter up to five (5) images, upload your photo(s) to Adventure Cycling’s Contests Flickr™ group and tag them with Adventure12. You must tag your photo for it to be eligible.
