2009 Photo Contest for 2010 Calendar

is over!

Enter the Next Photo Calendar Contest here

2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008's Photo Contests were very popular. The winning photos go into the HU Calendar, (2009 available here), and the calendars have proved to be very popular too! Photos from previous years will continue to be available in 2009 calendars in case you really like the photos from a particular year.

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!

You can get your inspirational 2010 HU Motorcycle Travellers Calendar, with these photos in it, here now!
