A NEW photography challenge launched this week is set to get pulses racing among the UK and Ireland's 1.2m+ motorcyclists.
The brainchild of specialist insurance broker Carole Nash, Moto Foto is searching for the best motorcycle-related photography of 2014.
The twelve finalists' photographs will feature in the prestigious 2015 Carole Nash calendar, which will be handed out at the NEC Motorcycle Live Show in November. The overall winner will scoop a brand new Nikon D7100 worth over £1,000, while two runners-up will bag a Nikon 1 J4 and Coolpix P340 respectively.
The contest - open to all amateur photographers who have captured an exciting or evocative motorcycling moment, scene, event or object - is broken down into four categories.
'Action' will focus on shots of race meets, track days, and off road and stunt shows. Category two will boast photographs of the 'scenic' nature from touring in either the UK or abroad, while category three will feature 'static bike images'. The final category - entitled 'Bike Art' - allows for entrants with photographs of creative composition, close ups and special effects to get involved.
Entrants are required to post a print-quality photograph of their choice, along with a few words of description, in one of the four categories listed. The closing date for content submission is midnight on 13 August 2014. Voting commences on 27 August 2014 and closes at noon on 17 September 2014.
Rebecca Donohue, Head of Marketing at Carole Nash, said: "Moto Foto is set to become one of the UK and Ireland's largest motorcycle-based amateur photography competitions and will be voted for by the motorcycling community.
"Biking is a lifestyle and passion for most and has a long established following. Its diversity and freedom offers an excellent opportunity to capture some amazing imagery hence why we've dubbed it photo-biking."
