The 2015 MCN Moto Foto competition, brought to you by Carole Nash, saw thousands of stunning biking images taken by talented amateurs pass across the judges’ desks, and the winners were revealed at Motorcycle Live.
With cash and Nikon prizes up for grabs, and a place in the Carole Nash 2016 calendar, Moto Foto was open to all amateur photographers, with three categories to choose from:
Action, Scenic & Touring, and Static & Bike Art. The judges selected the best 60 images (to celebrate MCN’s 60th anniversary) and the public then voted on their favourite images via the Carole Nash Insidebikes Facebook page (facebook.com/insidebikes). The top 10 then joined the judges’ top 20 to create a shortlist of 30 photographs (celebrating Carole Nash’s 30th anniversary).
The judges then selected 12 finalists, before opening the shortlist up to a public vote again to select the first, second, and third-place prize winners, who each won a mix of cash and camera bundles from Nikon – with the top prize bundle valued at £2119.99.
The man who grabbed that top prize was Matt Gardiner, with his shot of the MotoGP safety bike at Valencia.
Second prize winner Mike Stuart narrowly missed out on the top slot with his Bonneville Speed Week launch shot, while Jack Cox completed the podium with his travelogue adventure shot, taken in Nepal.
