FOR THE WIN: £1000 of Canon Camera Gear

We’ve teamed up with photography giants Canon to give away two amazing prize bundles to budding photographers!


For your chance to win some amazing Canon gear, show us your best photographs. All you have to do is use the hashtag #canonfirsts on your best BMX shots, and add them to Instagram.

There’s a reason why Canon cameras are trusted by some of the best action sport and adventure photographers in the world, including most of us here at Ride UK. From BMX to skateboards, snowboarding to surfing, and everything in between, the great and good trust Canon to bring their world to life and live for the story.

Here’s your chance to win one of two amazing prize bundles. Check out what’s up for grabs:

1st Prize

2nd Prize

  • Canon EOS 800D with kit lens EF-S 18-55 mm f/4-5.6 IS STM – a sophisticated DSLR that’s easy to use

  • EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens

Photography is at the heart of everything we love. Whether it’s floaty backside 360’s into the sunset, big glassy waves peeling out of the ocean, or those skin-blistering runs through the trails, unless there’s somebody there to get capture that moment, that’s all it really is; a moment. A fleeting memory, distorted over time, eventually forgotten. But get a photo, and it’s there forever, writ large for the world to see. A photograph makes memories, and captures them forever.

Canon 1st Prize Bundle

Canon 2nd Prize Bundle

We’re looking for the undiscovered photographers out there. A new generation, whatever the age, who can capture that special moment that can bring it to life. And we want to see what you’ve got.

Entering couldn’t be easier. Whether it’s an old shot or a new one – as long as it’s one of your own – add #canonfirsts to your very best BMX photos when you upload them to Instagram.

Editors from the Factory Media network, which includes the biggest names in Action, Outdoors and Adventure will sit down and pick the winners.

Photographs simply have to be your own work, and good enough to impress our panel of action sport and adventure judges. So, what are you waiting for?

Looking for some inspiration? Here’s one from the Ride UK vault. But don’t worry, we won’t pick it as a winner…
