The 15th Annual Bicycle Travel Photo Contest is open to ALL photographers at least 18 years of age.
Entrants must not submit images that infringe on the rights of any other photographer or person.
Photos that have been digitally altered beyond standard optimization (removal of dust, cropping, reasonable adjustments to exposure, color and contrast, etc.) will be disqualified. Multiple exposures that have been combined to produce a single "High Dynamic Range" image are acceptable.
Entries may originate in any format — including, but not limited to digital files, digital prints, color transparencies, color prints, or black and white prints — so long as they are submitted electronically. Previously published material for which non-exclusive rights were granted may be entered as long as you still maintain the right to grant us a license (see "Your Rights"). You must disclose when and where the image appeared previously to Adventure Cycling.
You will retain all rights to any photograph you submit — including ownership if applicable — other than those rights licensed in the next sentence. By entering the contest, you hereby grant to Adventure Cycling Association (i) a nonexclusive, worldwide, irrevocable, royalty-free license to reproduce, distribute, publicly display, and publicly perform the photographs you submit to Adventure Cycling, and (ii) the right to use your name, city, state, and country of residence in promotions and other publications.
Adventure Cyclist will offer photographer compensation commensurate with our standard rates for any editorial use in Adventure Cyclist magazine beyond the publication of winning images in the July/August 2024 issue (use in an Adventure Cycling house advertisement does not qualify).
By entering this contest, you agree to certain legal conditions.
