Official 2017 Calendar Contest

Post by DesignFlaw06 »

Calendar is now available!
Buy here! 25% Off Discount Code: 6LZFHB4T



There seemed to be enough interest so we'll do a bit of a contest. Submit your best picture for the calendar. I'll have a running list of them, and you select your top 6. As more images are added, I'll add more options.

Rules for entry.

1) Pictures need to include motorcycles. People are optional. They should be scenic in nature. Landscape orientation!
2) For the first year, I'm going to say 1 submission per user. So submit your best picture.
3) The person with the most votes will win a free calendar. The sooner you have your picture in, the more exposure and likely more votes you'll get.
4) You can vote for up to 12. You're allowed to change your votes as more pictures are submitted.
5) I'll cut off voting December 15th. Give me a couple days to get the calendar together and it will be ready to order.
6) You must be able to provide a full resolution image at the end of the contest. If you can't, your image is disqualified and the next one moves up.
7) Image with the most votes earns a free calendar. Depending on how much interest we have, there may be prizes for 2nd and 3rd.
8) We'll take at least the top 12 images. Maybe more, we'll see

Its the first go at a contest for here. There may need to be some tweaking, but here's what we have so far.

Ok, so one small hiccup already. It turns out if you add options during a poll, it automatically resets the vote count. But it doesn't reset if I just change the name of the option. So what I've done is put blank options to fill out the maximum number. But if we got 11 submissions in a day, I'm wondering if 20 is enough.

Please don't vote for the blanks. They will be changed as I get new entries.

Tim,

I can increase the number of poll options, or we could put an additional poll in post 2.

All great photos, all of them worthy of any calendar I have ever bought. But since there are only 11 entries so far...

The Redfish Photo:

This is on the Burr Trail in Utah.

Tim - thanks for taking this on. I debated over a few to submit, but have decided on this one.

That's cheating. You have managed to have YOUR bike entered twice in the same contest. ;)

Damn. We got some fine photos to choose from. Not that it matters, but I should seriously drop mine from consideration...it's just wasting space.

Wayne - that shot is friggin awesome. I've long admired it from your avatar, but the full sized version is much much better.

Sorry, I was out of town yesterday and it was a little hard to edit on my phone.

The photos should be up to date now.
