Bike Film!!

Make a film, win a bike!

The Bradford Bike Film Project is looking to capture this summer’s cycling in Bradford on film. They’ll create a digital archive which can then be used to promote cycling in Bradford, to attract visitors, and assist bids for major cycling competitions. To kick-start the archive, the CTC have kindly offered a bike as a prize for the best film recorded at Cyclefest.

Films should not be longer than 2 minutes. Feel free to use mobile phones and digital cameras to make your film. Film respectfully and safely, and never whilst riding unless you are lucky enough to have a helmet cam.

By submitting films to the competition, you agree that they can be used freely by the CTC and Bradford Bike Film Project. Entries must be received on DVD by the CTC in Bradford before the end of July, giving you plenty of time for editing. Don’t forget to provide your name, address and age.

Watch the T & A for winners and further details of the archive project. Keep filming!

For further details contact Jon Riley on 07799 256 922
