We have photo contest winners!


First, thanks to all the amazing photographers who submitted bicycle-themed nighttime images, and thanks again to the great sponsors Planet Bike and Bikeglow who provided prizes. Ryan from GoMeansGo and I finally managed to settle on winners, after looking long and hard at all the entries.

The winner of the Planet Bike winter commuter package, which was selected by the staff at Planet Bike, is Mark Magnussun.  For his photo Düsseldorf Winter Landscape Mark wins a set of Cascadia fenders, a mini pump, a Blaze 2W or Blaze Dynamo headlight, a SuperFlash rear light, and a saddle bag with tire levers and patch kit. (Let that be a lesson to you: next year submit a photo with an umlaut in the title!)


Ryan and I chose Tim Kainu as having submitted the best overall images – we disagreed slightly on which was our favorite, but heartily agreed that he was tops overall. Tim wins a nice prize package worth over $100 – a Bikeglow unit, a Planet Bike Blaze 2 watt LED headlight, and a Planet Bike Superflash Stealth rear blinkie light.



For the best Northwest image, the prize goes to Robin, aka Ray Tracing who submitted some great shots from two Seattle nighttime photo shoots done for the contest. Robin wins a full prize package – a Bikeglow unit, a Planet Bike Blaze 2 watt LED headlight, and a Planet Bike Superflash Stealth rear blinkie light.


And for most creative image, the prize goes to this awesome long exposure that was submitted by Twin Cities Brightest very early in the contest. Twin Cities Brightest also wins a Bikeglow unit, a Planet Bike Blaze 2 watt LED headlight, and a Planet Bike Superflash Stealth rear blinkie light. If anyone will put lights to good use, it’s him!


But that’s not all! Planet Bike was kind enough to throw even more lights in the box they sent me, so Ryan and I chose a few more winners.

There were lots of “in motion on the street” shots submitted, of those we chose this ghostly commuter image from Ken Kraft as the winner of a Planet Bike Spok micro blinkie.


Sweendo gets a Planet Bike Superflash Stealth for his creative Northwest submissions that were close runners up in several categories.


DPJ gets a Planet Bike Spok micro blinkie for the great images submitted.


If Flickr user Carol Torres in Sao Paolo can come up with a USA address for me to mail it to, she can get a Planet Bike Spok micro blinkie for her photo from Amsterdam.


And finally, because we ran out of prizes long before we ran out of great photos, Flickr user Cosmicmotionstudios gets our last Planet Bike Spok micro blinkie.


Thanks again to everyone who participated! Your photos are all amazing.

Winners: I am trying to reach you, but if you see this first, email juju@bikejuju.com with your mailing address (US or Canada only), and if you are Tim, Ray or TCB, state your order of preference for a blue, red or white Bikeglow unit, and for a black or white Planet Bike Blaze. First folks to express a preference will get priority, and I’ll give up on contacting all winners by late January and give any leftover prizes away in future contests.

The Dark Days are ending and the days are getting longer! Happy holidays! Bikejuju will be on hiatus till 2010. (But meanwhile you can also see my photos of a pretty blue Chinese Phoenix bike in Ethiopia).
