Make it Big With Answer / Ssquared Ad Contest

April 11, 2018 by  

Answer/Ssquared Ad Design Contest
We all keep our eyes on the fast factory flyers featured in our monthly Pull Magazine–especially in the ads. It’s cool to look close and check out what everyone is running, parts-wise…or that trick new colorway that isn’t coming out til Grands, or maybe some proto-ala-moto parts that won’t hit the market til next season.

Between now and April 26, Answer BMX, Ssquared and Clayborn Bicycles are giving you the opportunity to be one of those featured flyers, with a contest for designing the coolest ad for a future issue of Pull.

Here’s what they told us, in a release:

Do you ride an SsquaredBicycles with Answerbmx components? How about a ClaybornBMX bike with AnswerBMX components?

If so this contest is for YOU!!

Design a worthy magazine AD including your bike and you may be the next USA BMX Pull Magazine superstar!

The Winning ad will be featured in the magazine, and will receive a fully-loaded goodie bag including five copies of the magazine for your fans. Winner will be chosen by our awesome All Star Pro lineup.

Submit your design on either Instagram or Facebook with the
#AnswerbmxAD. Make sure your profile is visible and if your using a photo from a photographer, make sure you have permission

Submission deadline is 4.26.18

WE ENCOURAGE ALL OF OUR RIDERS, WHETHER YOUR ON A TEAM OF OURS OR JUST A FAN TO ENTER.

That is going to be some serious fun! So shine up your scoot, get out to the track with a proper photog, and get some shots to use in your submission.

BMX News always wants to give our readers the best possible chance at things like this, so here are some pro-tips:

– Download logos below (we have made them transparent-background)

– Create your submission to Pull Magazine specs (8.5″ x 11.125″). Make any images run off the edge of the page (called “bleed” in print production jargon).

– Be sure that you have the hi-res version of the photo(s) you use in your submission. This will not matter for the contest submission; you can use 72ppi images there, but you will need a hi-res 300ppi image for the actual ad that will run in Pull.

– If you need product images, go to answerbmx.com, ssquaredbicycles.com and/or claybornbicycles.com and use right-click, “save image” to download them.

– Buddy up with someone who has Adobe InDesign, Illustrator and/or Photoshop. It will be much easier to do this with those production tools. Some public libraries have them, and many schools as well. You might even be able to get exra credit for an art class by doing this “assignment.”

Best of luck! If you hashtag #BMXNEWS in your submission, and you win, we will send you a goodie bag of News swag on top of what you win from Answer/Ssquared/Clayborn.
