Photo contest rules and details:

The general info...

  1. 6 Finger Bikes will be given away 3 to first place, 2 to second and 1 to third place.

  2. Judges will consist of 3 riders that have been dealing with BMXTRIX since the beginning.

  3. All photos will go into the new BMXTRIX photo gallery which is debuting in late June/early July.

  4. All entries may be used by BMXTRIX entirely and for whatever purpose BMXTRIX feels is reasonable.  BMXTRIX does not get original copyright, just the right to use the photos within the site or for additional promotion of the site.

  5. Contest will be running until AUGUST 15, 2000.  Winners should be announced AUGUST 20, 2000.

  6. Due to postage and import laws Finger Bikes can (may) only be shipped within the continental United States.  BMXTRIX will attempt to ship anywhere in the world - but postage will (may) be due on the prizes.

  7. Multiple entries from the same person are DEFINITELY allowed and could result in one person winning multiple times- though it is not likely.

  8. YOU must hold the copyright of the photo being submitted...  This means that you must be the one who shot the picture.  DO NOT STEAL PHOTOS FROM OTHER WEB SITES!!!!  If anyone finds out that a photo came from another website please send information to - thanks.

Photography Rules:

  1. Photos are preferred in a web friendly format:  This means .jpg, .gif, or .png.  This should be available through your photo editing program.  If you NEED a photo editing program click here and try Fireworks for free for 30 days.  Additional details of this are at the bottom of this page.

  2. Photos may be color or black and white.  It doesn't matter.

  3. Scanned photos are best sent at about 800 pixels across or LARGER as a .jpg saved in quality 5-7 (50-70).  This should be an option when you save the photo.

  4. Photos may not contain obscene things- this is just due to the web host that BMXTRIX has.  Keep it clean!

  5. Photos MUST be of freestyle or freestyle related (BMXTRIX judges that!) regular BMX, mountain bikes, or other weird stuff won't be eligible.

  6. Small photos (under 400 pixels across) may not be used on the website due to their small size.  Same is true for photos of low quality.
