So, here’s the deal: Snap images of your bike, your friends bike, your friend’s friend’s bike, ripping trail, chillin’ at the local coffee shop, commuting through rush hour traffic, hucking off jumps or delivering the newspaper … whatever, as long as it permeates with elements of the riding lifestyle.

Take the right shots and win a $50 Kona store shopping spree for third place, $150 for second and $500 for first. Time to get the Kona clothing and accessories you’ve always wanted.

But, the gig doesn’t end there. The top three photographers selected by the bike-guru-photo-editors at Kona will be published in the 2009 Kona catalog which is slated to hit the streets this August. This is your time to get the fame, recognition, self-gratification and increased popularity you deserve for toting the camera around.

Email your top images to photos@konaworld.com before May 15, 2008. For more info check the webber.

Next up.

7Stanes photo competition.

Basically you need to take a snap of these sculptures and you could win a camera.

The competition is focused around the new seven stone sculptures which depict the myths and legends of southern Scotland. The sculptures have recently been installed across the 7stanes mountain bike centres, as part of a drive to encourage people to visit Scotland's forests.

The huge eye catching works of art have taken six months to create and will provide visitors to the forest with an experience to remember. The 'stanes' have been placed in prominent locations near cycling and walking paths and range in size from one to three metres high and from two to six tons in weight.
