25TH JANUAURY 2024
One of the most exciting parts Festivals is seeing how others see it!!!
We want you to show us (and the rest of the world) what these festivals mean to you through your personal perception. The judges are looking for consistency of vision and a demonstration of a coherent flow throughout your submission. Show us everything from the riders, the bikes, the events and the adventures to the vibes, stoke, hype and of course, the legendary after parties. Present your images as a 2 minute slide show set to music and be in with a chance to win .....
Give us the best you’ve got.
