SCANDINAVIAN PHOTO CHALLENGE SLIDESHOWS

Five amazing slideshows from the recent Åre Bike Festival.

Words by Richard Cunynghame

In the latest issue of Dirt (#103) you’ll find an article I wrote about the inaugural Åre Bike Festival. The whole thing was a jolly great spankingly gorgeous affair that you can read all about in the mag. You can also cast your eyes over some of the shots from the event and the winning photographs from each of the ‘Best Shot’ categories but the main prize of the event was awarded for ‘Best Slideshow’.

These obviously require too much technology to fit in a paper magazine and turning it into a flip book really wouldn’t have done them justice so here, in the true spirit of cross platform interaction, they all are in their magnificent splendour. (Just a tip, but if you got good bandwidth, hit the HD button and watch them all bigger)

I hope you enjoy watching these as much as I did when judging the competition. And if you want to check out my thoughts on each of the offerings and some more about the whole festival, grab yourself a copy of the marvellous Dirt ‘Magazine’.
