2008 Photo Contest for 2009 Calendar
The contest is now 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 2008 contest - Jolanta Glabek, Gemma Sunderland, Kris Miller, Tyson Brust, Ekke Kok, Paul Hurcomb, Laurent Bendel, Valerie Peponnet, David Breedon, Alan Whelan, Stefan Thiel, Jean-Louis Grauby and Sean Howman.
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 Tyson Brust, Canada, for his photo of Jose Rodriguez from Ecuador, riding the rim of Guagua Pichincha volcano, Ecuador; Honda CRF 450X.
The 2008 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.

Are you an Overland Adventure Traveller?
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!
