Anyone who's followed the thread on this year's ChopCult Photo Contest might empathize with me when I say it: selecting these top-ten finalists from the nearly 200 entries received wasn't easy. After Billdozer and I weighed our 20 or so initial favorites against the judging criteria one last time, these are the ten photographers whose images best captured the spirit of today's modern rider, in our opinion. If you disagree with some or all of our choices, please feel free to start your own photo contest in the main forum. It's not as easy some of you think.
To cast your vote for the grand prize winners, please go to the polling thread here.
When you visit the polling thread, simply check the box next to your favorite photographer and let the automagical software calculate the winners—no comments required. On December 1 we'll post the three images in another news feature and ship the three grand prize packages to each winner.
Thanks again to these generous sponsors for donating prizes for this contest:

And of course, thanks to the nearly 200 CC readers who submitted images for the contest.

is my fav
since i have seen people complain about naked girlfriends, nothing really surprises me anymore.
this is a rad contest and all 10 of these pics are awesome. thanks bill and hallwade! don't let the complaints of a few stop you from doing more of this stuff.
i'm all about the kylefromcanton pic! i love it!
Art should be polarizing, because art should draw emotion; love, hate, happiness, anger, something.
whingers are fags!!
Kevinphan get's my vote, cuz he's cool people.
And as far as the "militant gay biker gang"......where do I sign up?!?!?!?!
I dig Cro as well but Onesickrace really nailed it ....
For artistic merit and quality, OneSickRace has an amazing shot. I would frame that and hang it on the wall. Content is great too; makes me wish I was there.
Several of the others capture different things though including Cro, DanisDead and more. Congrats to all of the "finalists" on great shots, but more importantly great life experiences to share.
