2007 Photo Contest for 2008 Calendar
2007 Photo Contest Winners - for 2008 Calendar
So we decided to make the contest an annual event, where you can showcase your best photos, and they can help inspire others to get on the road too. The new design for the website is coming along nicely, and we have a lot of new stuff in the works - one of them will be using the photos - they will appear randomly in the web pages, so everyone will get to enjoy almost ALL the photos submitted, not just the winners!
Congratulations to the winners of the 2007 contest - Andy Gower, Brad Houghton, Juan Pablo Gonzalez, Carl Parker, Julie Rose, Ingo Cordes, Marc Gibaud, Mark Stowe, Matt Slater, Eddie Mendes, Stefan Thiel and Saskia Roskam.
It was a really hard job to narrow it down to only 13 pics, as we had hundreds of great photos to choose from, but we think that the winners really deserve their accolades. The small pics don't really do them justice, you'll just have to buy the calendar to appreciate them in full size. All winners will receive a share of the proceeds from the calendar sales, a free calendar, and 1 year Gold Member status on the HUBB.
The Grand Prize winner is Stefan Thiel, Germany, for his photo of Giancarlo 'Carlo' Albrecht (Germany); On the piste from Rissani to Zagora in Morocco, Honda Transalp.
The 2007 contest is CLOSED, but the Next contest is now open, so start shooting!
Tip: Make sure your camera is set to at least 2300x1800 pixels!
The best 13 photos will be used in the calendar, and those photographers will receive a share of the proceeds. Winners will also get a free calendar, and 1 year Gold Member status on the HUBB.

Does the smell of spices wafting through the air make you think of Zanzibar, a cacophony of honking horns is Cairo, or a swirl of brilliantly patterned clothing Guatemala? Then this is the site for you!
