Bicycle Travel Photo Contest
What to Submit
According to Adventure Cycling:
"These images can be taken anywhere in the world. Photos that focus on the scenery of an area must include some connection to or indication of bike travel. We are especially interested in images that showcase the wide range of bike-touring experiences: road and dirt riding, rural and urban settings, scenery, people, and the emotions."
How to Submit
Adventure Cycling will accept digital image via email or through its Flikr image site. According to the guidelines:
"Via FlickrTM - If you have multiple photos to enter in the competition, please consider using this method to enter the contest. After logging in, upload your images using the mechanism provided.
"If you are not already a member of Adventure Cycling's Contests group on FlickrTM, join by clicking "Join this Group?" on the group's homepage. Browse to the image you wish to submit for the contest, and use the "Send to Group" function to add your images to Adventure Cycling's Photo Contest photo pool.
"Once added to the group, tag each photo with Adventure09. If you do not upload your photo to Adventure Cycling's Contests group on FlickrTM, or do not tag your photo with an appropriate tag, it will not be considered for the competition.
"Via Email Submission Process - If you choose not to use FlickrTM to submit your image, you may email your photo to email@example.com. Send a low-resolution version of the image (72dpi) along with the subject of the image, the location the image was taken, and the name of the photographer(s).
"You will also need to be able to provide a print quality high-resolution version of the photo upon request, no less than 2250 pixels wide and no less than 3000 pixels tall, preferably at 300 dpi."
