The competition has now finished and the winners have been announced: please visit this page of CyclingEurope.org to discover who the lucky winners were.
The Cycling Europe Cycle Touring Photograph of the Year Competition will return in 2021!
The judges have met, deliberated, discussed, debated and chosen their favourite ten photographs. If you made it into the top ten, congratulations! You have won a new EuroVelo overview map that will be in the post before the end of the month. If you didn’t make the top ten, commiserations; there’s always next year…
But the competition isn’t quite over yet. It’s now the public – yes, you! – who will decide the first, second and third prize-winning photographs. Democracy in action!
The voting closes at midday (UK time) on Sunday 7th June 2020
Here are the shortlisted photographs, in alphabetical order of first names:
