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 iamthespeedhunter@speedhunters.com 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.

Safe shooting.

This is going to be good. Can't wait to see what everybody has to offer.


I have joined the Flickr site but have not been able to submit anything. I am doing what is asked, I think, but there are no specifics. What is needed to go through Flickr?


@guest You need to join the group #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER - http://www.flickr.com/groups/iats/ 
Once you have joined, you should be able to add up to five images per day. Let me know if you have any problems.


how do i open the page up in presentation mode?


This all-images-are-downloadable-wallpaper thing is taking up space on my disk fast. But I would never go back to the old format as well. Download all images! Speedhunters rule.


MrMikeOc When you hover your mouse over top of any of the pictures in the post, a black translucent box should appear on the bottom of the picture, there you'll have 3 options to pick to either enter presentation mode, download the picture as a wallpaper, or share the image. Click the enter presentation mode.
There is also a white box with a black circle inside of it with a computer inside of that at the bottom left corner of the first image (cover image?) of each post. Click that and you should enter presentation mode as well


yanesnyawai It's okay, external storage is cheap these days.


how many images are allowed Paddy ?


This is going to be awesome..... my file submission is 1.6mb!
I like this wallpaper-sized submission thing


Goddammit, I forgot to put my name on the first of the two emails hahahaha. Hope you guys can see it in the "sender" field, otherwise I'll just have to hope for someone to choose the pics from the second one lol
