All photo submissions, once approved, will be entered into a random draw for a chance to win the Secondary Prize.

JUDGING PANEL

The five (5) finalist entries will be selected based on an online, public voting process and will move forward to the second stage of the selection process – the judging panel!

The judging panel will be comprised of six SustainMobility employees who will score the five finalist entries to determine the grand prize winner. Our judging panel will score each of the five finalist entries for 'creativity' based on the following criteria:

  • Originality – use of the CycleLoan bicycle in the photo
  • Visual Impact
  • Image Quality
  • Narrative Quality – make sure your photo tells your story

Each criteria category will be weighted equally. The finalist entry which receives the highest total score from the judging panel will be declared the grand prize winner of a $500 VISA Gift Card.
Please Note: A maximum of 1 entry per contestant will be considered by the judges. If multiple entries are submitted by a participant, only the entry with the highest amount of votes will be eligible for the grand prize. 

All photo submissions, once approved, will be entered into a random draw for a chance to win the Secondary Prize.

WHAT SHOULD MY PHOTO INCLUDE?

All photos entered MUST include an identifiable part of the CycleLoan bicycle in the photo. This seems obvious, but just in case anyone needs a reminder, we will disqualify any photo that we deem as inappropriate.  That means we don’t want to look at anything violent, derogatory, racist, sexist, and so on.  For a full list, please refer to the fine print (Click here for the 2017 Rules and Regulations).
