The 2014 Motorcyclist Readers Photo/Hashtag Challenge Is On!

To enter, simply follow Motorcyclist on Facebook here, follow @MotorcyclistOnline on Instagram here, then share your best theme-related pics. If you do not have an Instagram account, you can sign up for free in the App Store using your iPhone or iPad. Make sure your settings are set to share your pics publicly so we can see them, and don't forget to add the hashtag. The theme for February is: I Need A New Lid. Share your best and most creative pic on Instagram that shows why you need to win a new helmet, and hashtag it with #ineedanewlid

The Challenge: New hashtag themes will be announced at the beginning of each month throughout 2014 on Facebook. You shoot a photo that best captures that theme and share it publicly on your Instagram page along with the given hashtag in the caption. For example, if we say the theme is “bike night”, you share your most creative bike night pic and tag it #bikenight. (Important: Your IG feed must be set to public so that we can see your tagged pics!) Be original and be creative!

The Prize: At the end of each month, MC editors will pick the photo that best matches the theme. It's as simple as that. Each monthly winner will be featured in _Motorcyclist Magazine as well as here on Motorcyclist Online!  And there will be two grand prize winners chosen, one in April and another in August to coincide with the two U.S. rounds of the MotoGP World Championship. The two grand prize winners will each receive a new helmet in the size of their choice._
