This week we’re announcing a new weekly story, a combination of our previous Week In Pictures and SpeedhuntingWKND features: #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER. From next Wednesday, this new feature will highlight the best automotive images from the previous week – the best images that can be seen on the web.
We’ll be rounding up images of the newest cars and interesting shoots around the web…
…but most importantly, #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER will highlight the cream of car pictures taken or discovered by you, the worldwide network of Speedhunters.
Taken a stunning photograph of a must-see car?
Been to an amazing local event that you think deserves coverage on Speedhunters?
Discovered an amazing image that you just know needs to be shared with the rest of the Speedhunters audience?
Then #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER is waiting for your image.
#IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER will be a global channel of crowd-sourced Speedhunting, an evolution of the SpeedhunteringWKND, and gives you the chance to stay involved and have the cream of your images stand alongside the best the automotive industry can offer.
There are three ways to submit your images. You can upload them to Twitter or Instagram, tagging your picture with #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER…
…or alternatively you can email in images to firstname.lastname@example.org. The photos should be formatted as medium quality JPGs at 800×533 pixels.
Make sure you add a quick description of what the image is or where it’s from. The images don’t have to be yours, but you must have permission of the copyright holder for us to be able to post them up. Note that this programme is distinct from #FeatureThis, which is for photographs of your own car. You can check out all of the hashtagged images on our #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTERS Tumblr stream.
#IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER will also showcase the latest imagery produced by the automotive industry: the best studio and promotional images released by car companies, tuners and race-teams that week.
We’ll continue to bring you the images of the latest cars, trailers, concepts and special events.
So, get out there and get hunting. You are the Speedhunter!
Thanks for posting one of my pics, the Celica. There is a higher res pic in my flickr Eleazar_G. There are some events I'm going to attend this weekend. Will be taken plenty of pics.
you guys featured my shot of the Porsche carrera 6 from the Melbourne formula 1 earlier this year!#keepleft
Jack Graham.thanks guys!
Does the medium resize setting in apple's mail meet the same dimensions as specified should you mail your own submission?
The thing is, if you're emailing stuff in and you make sure its of decent rez, we can feature it. If its really small its harder and particular to this program we're looking for really nice imagery so the higher the resolution the better.
@Nikhil_P OK Done. Now when you tag a photo in Flickr with #IAmTheSpeedhunter it'll make it to the feed. We still got lots of love for the Flickr :)
Hi CT, no you're right, we did not put it up on the site. We did announce it on Twitter though, I'll dig through the archive and find our winner. Apologies for the break in format. Have you submitted anything on the new #IAmTheSpeedhunter tag?
@crazybiscut Hi, no this was a mistake. You can submit as many images as you want mate! Open the floodgates, release the hounds, go crazy :D
@Speedhunters_Rob So, the pics can't be more than 800x533? And can I send you pics with my signature in it?
@Speedhunters_Rob Yeah thanks theres a local car show im try to do, thanks for the clarification
@Speedhunters_Rob Got it, thanks
@Roberto_Roy_Londero They can be as big as you want mate. The bigger the better! It gets trickier when they are too small. Absolutely no problem with your own watermark/signature too.
@Speedhunters_Rob Godwiling :D
@crazybiscut Awesome. Can't wait to see what you uncover
