We are currently accepting entries. You can submit your ideas until the 15th of September.
The submissions can be in any form you deem appropriate; written text, reference photographs, sketches, for ease of use please send images in PDF format. We would advise against full renders for the reason outlined below. Include a signed copy of the text written at the bottom of this page which allows us to promote your ideas on social media, as we shall also be asking the general public for their opinions. Please remember we are looking for ideas and design flair, so we're happy to accept these expressed in whatever form you feel comfortable communicating in.
The deadline is absolute, with no exceptions. We will then whittle down the applicants to a shortlist of ten, which will then be announced on the 6th of October.
Each one of the ten finalists will be given a budget of €400 to produce a render by the 21st of October.
We will then consider the renders in relation to the original applications, and refine the shortlist to five finalists, who will be announced on the 1st of November.
We would then like to meet the finalists during the month of November, after which we will make our final decisions.
The two winning builders will be announced on the 1st of December. The builders will then have six months from that date in which to build and deliver the bikes.
The two winning bikes will be featured on Bike EXIF, and will be exhibited at a number of high profile custom bike events from the spring of 2019.
After a European tour, the bikes will consequently take pride and place in The Harrison Collection, arguably one of the most important Italian bike collections in the world.
