About a month ago we announced that we were throwing a photo contest where the 2 winners would receive cash, gear and to become Sponsored Fyxation Photographers. Basically these two photographers will be involved in all of our product launches over the coming months and will receive everything we are launching including a few items that are a bit bigger than what you've seen from us so far.
There are so many great photographers out there and often times you only hear about the riders in the shots or a handful of photographers that are connected with the industry. We decided to let anybody submit samples of their work to become eligible to compete in our contest. From that work we selected 10 finalists and sent them each a collection of Fyxation gear so they could set up their own Fyxation photo shoot.
Well the finalists have finally submitted all their work and the results have far succeeded our expectations. We didn't want to have any kind of impact on the type of shots the photographers submitted so we gave them complete creative freedom and let them do what they do best. Because of this there's been a bit of controversy with some of the photos but the point wasn't for us to tell these creative individuals what to do. We wanted to see what they were capable of and we couldn't be more pleased.
We've posted their images on our Facebook page and we'll be announcing the winners this Wednesday. Please head over to our page to show your support and vote on the ones you like the best. Likes, Shares and Comments won't be the deciding factor on who wins but it may help us give certain photos a closer look.
Thanks again to all of the finalists and hopefully you've had as much fun as we've had throughout this process.
