2017 International Female Ride Day Photo Contest - MOTORESS
2017 International Female Ride Day Photo Contest

Here it is, the details for our 11th International Female Ride Day© photo contest!  For over a decade we’ve asked you to share the moments you captured during your “JUST RIDE!” day experience.  That photo which captured you alone, with friends or at an event can win you one of two exciting prizes! Plus, prize or not, women riders around the world love to share a taste of their own unique riding culture. And we all love to see that!  Share what you did, where you rode and how you spent your 11th International Female Ride Day©  !

New For 2017 “Group” Photo Category

For 2017 we’re adding another category and prize just for groups. So send in your International Female Ride Day© (IFRD) photo, selfie or group shot from your ride on  Saturday 6 May and you could be a lucky winner of:

  • TOMTOM Rider 400 GPS
  • REV’IT! AirWave 2 Ladies Jacket

Many of you recall, in earlier years, we awarded a souvenir to the first number of photos submitted on International Female Ride Day©.  On that same idea of sharing and submitting your photo you not only get to show the other women the world over how you spent your day in your country, region or city.

The photo contest occurs through the International Female Ride Day Facebook page where we’ve installed a photo contest app to manage the whole voting process.   The photo with the highest number of “VOTES” wins.
