2018 Photo Contest for International Female Ride Day - MOTORESS
2018 Photo Contest for International Female Ride Day

For the 12th year we’re celebrating International Female Ride Day© shared moments captured by you or your friend’s camera in our global “JUST RIDE!” photo contest! Submit your International Female Ride Day© (IFRD) photo of you and your motorcycle from your ride on Saturday 5 May – and you could win!

*Note: due to unexpected technical issues, unfortunately, the photo contest voting could no longer occur. We closed the voting and awarded a winner for the highest number of votes at the time of closing the “Group Photo” category. This was awarded to the Canadian submission with over 720 votes. There were over 500 women riders in their photo submission. We will share this with you shortly. Thank you for your understanding. The unexpected technical challenges left us with no other option.

Please continue SUBMITTING YOUR PHOTOS by email or via photo contest registration upload, until 15 May for the second part of the contest.
