Boulder, Colorado, USA — July 3, 2018 — Triathlete, the world’s #1 triathlon resource, closed the brand’s first-ever photography contest announcing 16 winning photographs from 14 photographers. The Triathlete 2018 Photo Contest ran April 23rd – May 7th, 2018 and collected over 200 photographs from all over the world. The editors of Triathlete called for photographs that conjure emotion and judged photographs by how well they telegraph the awe-inspiring challenge and community of triathlon.
“We received hundreds of photos that show the emotion of triathlon and the special stories of our sport,” said Erin Beresini, Editor-in-Chief of Triathlete. “I just love what I saw—a totally new and fresh angle on what makes triathlon special.”
All 16 winners are featured in the August issue of Triathlete magazine and in a gallery on triathlete.com. The August issue, titled “EXPOSED”, is now on newsstands. Social posts of the winning photos will be shared on Instagram in the days following. The top photograph, shot by Boulder-based photographer/videographer Talbot Cox, nabbed the spot on Triathlete’s August issue cover with a drone shot taken at Ironman Cozumel in 2017.
“One of the coolest parts of this contest is that every snapper sent in a short caption that shared why they took the photo and what they loved about it,” said Liz Hichens, Senior Digital Editor for Triathlete.com. “We will definitely run this contest again, so triathletes should look through their collections and be ready!”
Congratulations to all the winners! Grab copies of the August issue at your local newsstand or online here. Check out the online gallery on Triathlete.com/2018photocontest and follow Triathlete on Instagram to view all the winning photos from this contest.
