2010 Photo Contest for 2011 Calendar

2010 Photo Contest for 2011 Calendar

is Closed!

The 2011 contest for the 2012 Calendar is on now - enter to win!

See the 2010 winners below:

2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009's Photo Contests were very popular, with hundreds of entries. The winning photos go into the HU Calendar, (2010 available here), and the calendars have proved to be very popular too! Photos from previous years will continue to be available in 2010 and beyond calendars in case you really like the photos from a particular year.


The contest is 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 2011 HU Motorcycle Travellers Calendar, with these photos in it, here now!
