2014 Photo Contest for 2016 Calendar
The 2013 Contest is now CLOSED.
The 2014 Contest is now open! :)
ENDS January 31, 2015
The Horizons Unlimited Photo Contest is an annual event for travellers to showcase their best photographs from their travels around the world, so get your entry in soon!
Update on Contest dates - Please note!
In the past we have used Cafe Press to print calendars on demand. However that is quite expensive for the buyer, and there is very little profit to share with the photographers! :-(
We were approached by Octane Press, a company with a large distribution network, who are (rightly!) impressed by our calendar photos. They have offered us an opportunity to produce a bigger, better calendar at a lower price, with worldwide distribution and potentially a larger profit to share with the photographers.
The catch is the timing - in order to have calendars printed well before the peak autumn sale season, for the 2014 calendar, the deadline was early May! So, the calendar producer has selected 12 winners from previous years to produce a 'best of' calendar for 2014, and those photographers will share the profits from the 2014 calendar sales.
What about this year's contest? We've decided to extend the entry deadline to Jan 31, 2014, which will allow enough time to properly put the 2015 calendar together. We also have a new prize from Global Rescue.
Prizes for 2014 contest for the 2016 Calendar to be announced
ALSO: The best 13 photos will be used in the calendar, and those photographers will share equally in half the proceeds. All Winners will also get a free calendar, and 1 year Gold Member status on the HUBB! Your photos could also be in an HU DVD or on the website!
- Submit up to 6 photos, in high resolution jpg or tif format using the form below.
- Photos must clearly portray MOTORCYCLE Travel. The whole bike doesn't need to be in the picture, but there must be a motorcycle in the picture.
- Copyright remains with the photographer, but Horizons Unlimited (HU) requires the right to:
If you are NOT THE PHOTOGRAPHER - please don't submit it!
For the contest entry, you can send any file size from 800x600 up. We MUCH PREFER full 2300x1800+ pics ready to use.
BUT to be a winner, so we can publish the calendar, you must have available at least 2300x1800 (2272 x 1731 will BARELY do) pixel or greater files, at a high jpg quality. Either dimension or both can be larger!
PLEASE don't submit a photo if you don't have this resolution! Lower resolution photos CAN NOT be used.
Photos will be printed at approximately 11 x 16 inches.
Remember, contest closes January 31, 2015!

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!
