Brendon van Rooyen (BvR Photography) has been selected as the inaugural winner of the Criterion Power Sports Sick Pic of the Month competition powered by eHowz!t.
Judges Ronald Tarboton (Criterion Power Sports managing director), Wayne Frazer (Criterion Power Sports manager) and Quintin van Jaarsveld (eHowz!t sports and deputy editor) had their work cut out for them as several top-quality entries were submitted.
Ultimately, the judges opted for Van Rooyen’s striking photo of local skater Josh Fanner flipping out in Shelly Beach.
The image earned Van Rooyen great prizes from competition sponsor Criterion Power Sports.
The competition has a few simple rules.
Photos, whether taken in or out of competition, must be taken on the South Coast or by a South Coast local.
Eligible sports are drifting, rally, hillclimb, enduro, off-road riding, motocross, freestyle motocross, track, trials, cycling, surfing, bodyboarding, wakeboarding, skateboarding, boating, jet skiing, kayaking/paddling and fishing.
To qualify, entrants must like both the eHowz!t (click here) and Criterion Power Sports (click here) Facebook pages, submit a high resolution photo to firstname.lastname@example.org and include a short image description (photographer credit, athlete, location, event and entrant’s contact details).
By entering, photographers also agree that winning photos may be used by both Criterion Power Sports and eHowz!t rights free.
Entries for January are now open.
The cut-off date for monthly entries is the last Monday of each month to allow the judges sufficient time to select a winner.
All entries submitted after the cut-off date will roll over and be in the running for the following month’s competition.
