Unknown Bikes Photo Contest

Unknown is having a photo contest and sorry for the late notice, but it fell into my inbox quagmire during NAHBS. This contest is going until March 8th, so hurry and get on it. Here are the rules:

– Take a photo of your bike built around an Unknown frame.
– It can be still or action shot.
– Doesn’t have to be shot with the nicest equipment as long as the photo is engaging.
– The photo must be posted on their Facebook page.

The winner will receive a PS1 frame, K6 cranks, an Unknown carbon fork and a headset.

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)”
