With the posts wracking up and the submissions continuing to flow in, you would think that we would be happy to sit back at Speedhunters HQ and reflect on a job well done. The quality of the content that comes into our inbox every day is nothing short of staggering. However, there is something we feel that is not quite right…
By now, I’m sure you’ve noticed the all new Speedhunters site. It was developed from the ground up to provide the best platform possible to display our photography. It took me a little bit to get used to, but I wouldn’t even consider going back to the old site now.
Presentation Mode has been a godsend for us. It’s exactly how Speedhunters should be viewed.
With that said, let me get to the point. We feel that it is now the right time to open the doors for #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER and allow you to get in on the action. I’ve had the pleasure of viewing a lot of your work in a larger format and I think that this pleasure should be shared with others too.
My friends, it’s time to go big. For this theme your images need to be both big – no smaller than 1920PX wide – and beautiful. After that, the rest is up to you.
If you want to take part in this theme, you’ll need to do the following:
- E-mail your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the exact subject line of ‘The Big Theme’.
- Tell us your name, location and a little bit about the photograph.
- Attach the image directly to the email but ensure the image is no larger than 2000px on the longest side and a minimum of 1920PX.
- Make sure the image is free of any distracting watermarks. Don’t worry, we will make sure you are properly credited.
- Closing date for submissions is November 22nd 2013.
The other theme this month, which will be announced shortly, and the next round-ups will continue at 800PX until the end of this month. Come December, it will be all big, all the time.
We created #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER to allow you the opportunity to share your skills and car culture experiences from around the globe with the rest of the Speedhunters audience.
