Tweedlove 2017 film and photo competition – now open to pros and amateurs

This year’s Tweedlove Film and Photo Competition is back – with a new category for pros.

Tweedlove – the Scottish festival of mountain biking, held in the Tweed Valley – is back for 2017.

The festival will hold a short-film and a photography competition with winners announced on the Tweed Love Bike Night.

The criteria for images and video is super wide – images just need to be related to cycling. They can be shot anywhere in the World, featuring any rider and any style of bike from skinny lycra and tarmac to muddy baggies and mountains.

The judges for the competition will be photographer Ian Linton, the Tweedlove Crew, Lemon Digital Printers and the Three Fishes Gallery and victors will be crowned based on (Ian says) “how good the image. It’s is seriously hard to chose, they have to be strong on composition and action!”.

The Tweedlove Short Film competition is open to amateurs only and films should be 2.5-3 minutes long. Last year’s competition was called “Ru’s Film” and was won byLucy Grant and Ruaridh Johnson.

The Tweedlove Photography competition gets a new twist for 2017. There’s now an amateur and pro category – with full-time, professional photographers now welcome. Winners images will be framed and displayed in the EastGate Theatre for all to see. 2016’s competition was won by Ronan Dugan.
