How to Enter the Winter Stoke Photo Contest

Funny. Thoughtful. Arty. Adrenaline soaked. Or just plain cool. When it comes to subject matter and style, pretty much anything goes as long as it’s mountain biking related, shot in Washington, and legal. This year, in honor of Evergreen's 30th anniversary, there will be two categories, one for present-day entries and one for classic shots. We want to see all those great shots from the days of bar ends, toe clips and heavy lycra up to modern times. 

Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in both photo categories. Make sure to not wait until the last minute to turn in your photos. Please note, unlike last year, we will not be having a video contest, but will be playing some classic videos during the event.

All entries must complete this survey and email media to  


Photo Contest rules

  1. Shot on any legal Washington State Trail
  2. Min 4×6, max 11×17

Framed photo entries must also be submitted the week of the event. Pretty much anything goes as long as it's mountain biking related, shot in Washington, suitable for all ages, and legal. You'll get free admission to the party too with your photo submission!

The winning photos will get sweet prizes and be featured on our Instagram and Facebook Channels!
