Photo Contest Next Steps

The entry period for the EcoVelo Photo Contest is officially closed. If my tally is correct, we ended up with 411 photos! We’ll start the judging process this week and if all goes as planned we’ll have the winners for you within the next 10-14 days.

    Indeed! Good luck choosing the right one, Alan!! :-D

  • Alan says:

    Yeah, I know. Fortunately I’ll be employing the help of a panel of qualified judges so I’m somewhat off the hook.. :-)

  • Ows says:

    Only if you name them… otherwise, it’s you who’ll get it in the neck!! ;-)

    Alan, the photo contest was an outstanding series. Thanks for all the time and effort on your part for putting it together. You and the other judges truly have your work cut out. I viewed far too many outstanding images during this series. Thanks again.

    @Bike Jax

    Thanks! It was exciting finding so many excellent photos in my inbox everyday, though I have to admit, toward the end I started getting a little weary processing all the photos. :-)

    There’s really no way to objectively choose the 10 “best” photos from among so many, but with 4 judges I hope we come to at least some sort of consensus on the top few.

    Maybe you could divide the entries into different categories. Such as:
    Best landscape with bike.
    Best use of special effects.
    Best mug shot “Me & My Bike” (I didn’t enter that one, I’m too bug ugly.)
    Best close-ups
    Best demonstration of urban riding.
    Best of living the bike life. (Sounds like a beer commercial)
    So forth and so on.

    Some of my entries fit those categories, some don’t. Not that I’m biased. :-D
    I’d rather that you and your fine panel of judges can come up with your own categories.

    It would be nice to have your favorite selections, and the ones that didn’t earn prizes be put to a slide show with music. And captions. I love well written captions.

    OK, I’m done. Best of luck!
