Fyxation: Sponsored Photographer Contest

Fyxation is extending their sponsorship reach to potential photographers. Here are some details as to how you could land it:

“Photos of cyclists and their gear have the ability to inspire us, but behind every great rider or gear photo is a talented photographer. We wanted to put together a contest for the person behind the lens.  This is a chance for a select group of photographers to showcase their talents, win cash and gear and become a sponsored photographer for Fyxation.

How do I enter? Submit a portfolio of your work and a bio to [email protected] by July 4th. From these entries, we will select up to 10 finalists that will be eligible to compete for over $1000 worth of cash and gear.

How do I win? Once you are selected as a finalist, we’ll send you out free Fyxation gear for you to photograph or use in a video. You’ll then have 2 weeks to post your work to our Facebook page. Winners will be announced on July 18th.

What do I win?
1st place: $300 in cash / $150 in gear / Fyxation sponsorship
2nd place: $150 in cash / $150 in gear / Fyxation sponsorship

All finalists: You get to keep the gear we send out for photos. (As a finalist, you are also eligible for ongoing product sponsorship)”

Resist: Bald and Out Contest

Resist just posted up this contest to win a free set of Nomad tires:

“For all you guys that have completely bald, ripped or shredded tires, we have the contest for you.  Send us a picture via our Facebook wall of your worn out tire and we’ll see if you deserve a free replacement of new Resist Nomad tires.  Is it that simple? YES!  Read more for the rules.

Date of Contest Ending: July 2012

Send us a picture of your worn out tire and we’ll see if you deserve a free replacement set of new Resist Nomad tires.  It would help if you also sent us a picture of your complete bike also.  We obviously can’t give free tires out to everyone out there and we’ll be judging on who best deserves the tires.  We’ll only consider worn out tires that have been ridden and won’t accept a new looking tire with slashes or rips that looks like it could have been deliberately done.

How to submit your worn out tire.
All submissions have to be submitted to our Facebook Wall.  Also helps if you LIKE our page too.

A free set of Nomad tires (sidewall colors and sizes may vary due to current inventory).

1. Contests are only for Continental US residents (unless winner wants to pay for the overseas shipping)
2. We’ll only accept 1 entry per person.”

This one’s easy!

Tuesday Teardown: White Orange Giveaway

Psychedelic, cult rock, mixed in with Pacific Northwest vernacular influences is how’d describe White Orange‘s sound. But since they’re such stoners, they rant on about how White Orange embodies a “synesthesia of sound and movement, an ideological translucent experience, jammy epic psychedelic trance rock”. If you grew up listening to desert rocksters Kyuss, or had your skateboarding sessions fueled by Dinosaur Jr, these guys are for you. Hell, my dad’s love for King Crimson trickled over into my childhood music taste. All of these bands, mixed in with some Alex Grey-inspired cult album art make White Orange one unique band. And you can win some of their music, including a 2x LP.

Tuesday Teardown is back and I figured I’d start it off with something a lil different.
