After two months of furious hashtagging and over 1,500 entries, we finally have a winner for the Joby photo competition.
Up and down the land, budding media moguls have put their efforts into typing a symbol and nine letters onto photos old and new in the hope of winning a dream-come-true prize of £500 and a load of camera gear from Joby.
Well, at last we can announce the winners. With BMX and MTB going headset-to-headset in a bike battle, it was always going to be a tough call and in the end, MTBers came out on top. Bad news for BMX but the judges called it. We had some amazing BMX entries but here’s the winning entry from @fodmtb.
“You can’t beat a milky way shot for wow-factor and the pensive silhouette of a rider reminded us of the solitude we’ve all felt on solo rides. A unique shot.”
Paul (@fodmtb) said: “I’d been practicing a few times in the back garden but always wanted a decent night photo on the bike. I took it in the early hours to try and get the best sky with minimal light pollution. It didn’t work perfectly but actually added to the effect and was delighted with the outcome. A bit scary in the woods though on me own though!”
