Don’t miss your chance to achieve fame and fortune for your bike photography with the return of the Carole Nash and MCN Moto Foto competition. With cash and Nikon prizes up for grabs, and a place in the Carole Nash 2016 calendar, we’re looking for the best images out there.

Moto Foto is open to all amateur photographers, just follow the simple instructions on the below and upload your best motorcycle pic.

The categories are:

Action (race meets, track days, off road, stunt shows etc) 
Scenic/touring (UK or overseas) 
Static bike images (modern, classic, vintage) 
Bike Art (creative composition, close-ups, special effects etc.)

When all the entries are in there will be a two-tier shortlist process. Our expert panel will select the best 60 images (to celebrate MCN’s 60th anniversary) and the public will then have a chance to vote on their favourite images via the Carole Nash Insidebikes Facebook page.

The top 10 will join the judges’ top 20 to create a shortlist of 30 photographs (celebrating Carole Nash’s 30th anniversary).

The panel of judges will then select the 12 finalists before opening the shortlist up to a public vote again to select the first, second, and third-place prize winners. 

All 12 images will appear in the 2016 Carole Nash Calendar, which is handed out every year at Motorcycle Live, held at the NEC in November. The photos will also be displayed on the Carole Nash stand where the presentation and award of prizes will take place.

Plus, every entrant can claim a free copy of either Bike, Ride, Classic Bike or Performance Bikes magazine.

How to enter
Head to now and complete the easy registration form. Give your photo that extra push by giving a brief description of where and how you took the shot and why it’s special.
