There is only a little over a week until the start of the BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy 2022 in Albania on September 4.

The 57 finalists, who are competing in 21 international teams, have already received their BMW Motorrad rider kits, complete with names, national flags, and the GS Trophy 2022 insignia. They will soon begin their journey to Albania and will then be all set for unique GS Trophy experiences in one of the last largely untouched off-road paradises in Europe.

For those who can’t be there in person, BMW Motorrad will ensure comprehensive multimedia coverage of the event. GS fans from all over the world will be able to experience the GS Trophy 2022 every day in the form of reports, photos, and video clips and even to take part via a photo and video competition.

The GS Trophy Photo and Video Competition

The interactive photo competition was introduced in 2012 and was so well received, with many thousands of votes cast, that it has become a permanent feature of the event and will be expanded to include a video competition this year.

The teams themselves will capture the most exciting moments of their adventure in photographs and on film on two days of the GS Trophy 2022. The particular theme of the competition is completely open; it could be an action photo of teammates, a spectacular landscape, or perhaps a unique aspect of local life.

At the end of the two days, each team will submit its best photo or video, which will then be posted on the GS Trophy website. Voting also takes place on the website. Voting time will be limited to only 24 hours at a time.

Video competition:

Voting on September 6 from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. CET (which corresponds with a voting start time on September 5 at 6 p.m. ET, 3 p.m. PT)  

Photo competition:

Voting on September 8 from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. CET (which corresponds with a voting start time on September 7 at 6 p.m. ET, 3 p.m. PT)  

According to their voting results, the teams will receive points that will count towards their overall competition score.
