You Are Viewing Contest

And The Winner Of Our Photo Contest Is…

Posted March 15th, 2013

It took many hours to pore over the more than 700 entries, but after great debate we finally picked a winner in the contest to find a new cover for our Bike Touring Survival Guide.

Congratulations to Solidream, the photographic talent behind this amazing picture of three friends cycling through the eastern Sierra mountains in California.

Both of our judges loved this photo, and agreed it should be the winner of the contest. Paul Jeurissen said:

A well-balanced picture that really comes to life. Using the mountain to frame the cyclists really works beautifully.

Amaya Williams said:

This image evokes the challenge, camaraderie and simple thrill of cycle touring. It’s also shot from an interesting angle, the color really pops and the mountains in the distance provide a stunning backdrop for the cyclists.

We also have 3 runner-up prizes to award. They go to:

All winners will receive a print and eBook copy of the new Bike Touring Survival Guide (due out this spring). Solidream – as overall winners – will also receive a €50 cash prize, while the runners-up get a DVD copy of Tom Allen’s film Janapar.

Thank you to everyone who entered!

12 Great Bike Touring Photos

Posted March 6th, 2013

Our recent photo contest to find a cover shot for the upcoming 2nd edition of the Bike Touring Survival Guide received an outstanding response: over 700 photos were entered!

With so many great photographs, it was very difficult to shortlist just 10 photos. We ended up picking 12 favourites. There were many superb photos beyond those shortlisted but, for various reasons, they weren’t quite suitable as cover shots.

The shortlisted photos will now be judged by two bike-touring photographers, Paul Jeurissen and Amaya Williams. The winning entry will be announced on Friday, March 15th.

Without further delay, here are the 12 shortlisted photos (in no particular order). Clicking on the photos will take you to the image on Flickr.
