To the Mark Gunter Photographer of the Year Awards — 2022.
YOU’RE TOO LATE
Entries are now closed for the #markgunterphotoawards2022. Look out for the Judges Shortlists coming soon and the Winners announcement in late January 2023.
ANOTHER YEAR STRONGER
We’re in our 7th year of the Mark Gunter Photographer of the Year Awards — and we’re another year stronger.
2022 — it’s been a year full of cycling racing and living life uninhibited — and that’s something to celebrate!
This years’ awards celebrate everything & everyone who have been part of cycling, whether it’s as a rider in the peloton, a young racer embarking on their cycling career, or a weekend warrior in a bunch.
We want all cyclists and cycling photographers to be part of the Awards — to share your images, your moments, and your love of cycling from behind the lens.
We have four key reasons for being….
To remember Mark — and the impact he had on the Australian cycling community — especially the young cyclists, whose images he took for over 20 years.
To give back — both to cancer research and to young cyclists worldwide, who need a little financial leg up to take the next step in their cycling career.
To create a platform for photographers to present their work — especially those in the amateur category trying to launch onto the scene.
And finally, and probably most importantly, to give Lucas, a way to share in his Dad’s love of cycling and photography.
So the harder we work as a community, the more we can make our purpose come true.
A CHANGING OF THE GUARD
We thank CyclingTips for their six years of support — we couldn’t have done it without your ideation and your ongoing contribution to Mark’s legacy.
And now, with excitement — we welcome Rouleur magazine as this years promoter of the #markgunterphotoawards2022.
Rouleur is the world’s finest cycling journal created by passionate cyclists for cyclists — to read, cherish and collect. And high quality photography is at the heart of Rouleur — making this union a beautiful one.
We’re announcing an expanded judging panel and the opportunity for the shortlisted images to be exhibited at prestigious Rouleur Live event in London in 2023.
BE PART OF SOMETHING SPECIAL
Now is the time to grab your camera, your phone and your archives from this year, and scour them to find your entry images. May your photos inspire others to get on their bike, grab their camera, and live well.
Happy searching through your images, I can’t wait to see them.
