  3. Send a Flickr mail message (to the Travelling Two account) with your name and email address, so we can easily contact the winners.
  4. If you don’t want to sign up for a Flickr account, you can also email us your images. We will add them to Flickr for you. Make sure to include your name and email address. Be aware that it may take up to a week before we add your images to the Flickr group. The email is: us AT travellingtwo DOT com
  5. Entries can be submitted until February 28th, 2013. The winner will be announced approximately two weeks later.


The Small Print:

  • Photos must be available in a minimum resolution of 300 dpi and 2,000px on the longest side.
  • The subject should be bicycle touring. Photos of racing bikes and other non-touring subjects will be disqualified.
  • By entering, the winner of the photo contest grants the right to use the photo on the front cover of the Bike Touring Survival Guide. These rights are non-exclusive, meaning you remain entirely free to use and sell your photo.
  • All images entered in the contest may also be reproduced in an issue of BicycleTraveler magazine and on the website. This will only take place in articles and posts associated with the contest.
  • Use of photos will be credited with the name of the photographer and (if available) a link to their website or online profile.
  • You must be the copyright holder of a photo to enter it in the contest. If your picture contains images of other people, a model release from those people (giving their permission for the photo to be published) will be required. You will need to obtain this model release.


Send us an email and we’ll answer as quickly as possible.
