Photo Competition 2015

Photo Competition 2015

We're pleased to announce our first ever photo competition!
It's time to sift through your back-catalogue of images from past bikepacking trips and send us some of your best images for a chance to win a custom frame bag. Or, if you're feeling inspired enough, get your kit together and head out in the next few weeks to capture that perfect image.
The lucky winner will receive a custom Wildcat Gear frame bag to the specification of their choice, up to a value of £175.

We have two judges waiting to review your entries; both have an eye for fine detail, expansive views and a passion for bicycles. Judging will be conducted by Phil Taylor of Bespoked UKHBS / Libertine Bicycles, and Steve Makin - freelance journalist and renowned cycling photographer.
Here's what you need to do:
Your picture should depict the essence of bikepacking and the freedom it provides.
This may be a landscape or abstract shot featuring your bike and its gear, or a picture taken at a bivvy spot, or one of friends riding their bikes packed with gear, for example. Photos can be either landscape or portrait orientation, and may be colour or black and white. Images submitted should be at their native resolution. Maximum of 3 photos submitted per person.
Please send your pictures to:, by 31 March 2015.
