The Second annual Sketchs Ink Backyard Build-Off
IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN, FOLKS!
Do you or your buddies have a backyard motorcycle build that’s currently in the works?
Is it going to be worthy of winning a FREE custom paint job when it’s back in one piece?
Every year Sketchs Ink hosts a high-stakes, amateur motorcycle building competition where backyard builders from Ottawa and the surrounding area have the chance to win a FREE custom paint-job for their (or their team's) custom motorcycle. With this year's prize at a whopping $2500, this year's build-off will be one you won't want to pass up.
We’ll be kicking off this this year’s competition by accepting your entry submissions TODAY, and will keep accepting them until January 1st, 2019.
HOW TO ENTER:
This year we’ve made it easier for you to enter the competition by creating an entry submission form that you can download as a .PDF file. And yes, we also have printed forms in the showroom for you oldschool-types. If you choose to download and fill out the .PDF form, your entry submission must be submitted by email to [ email@example.com ]
Teams of amateur builders ARE in fact able to enter the competition as a team with one single motorcycle project, as long as each team member is eligible to enter. (see contest rules for more info.)
For your entry submission to be considered valid, each team member (if applicable) must have their first and last names listed in the entry submission form. In addition, you must attach NO LESS THAN 2 PICTURES OF THE MOTORCYCLE AS IT CURRENTLY SITS to the email. You may include other photos if you wish. (ex. The bike before you started the build)
For those who wish to fill out a form in person, photos can be emailed to the address above or scanned by us at the shop in person.
We will review each submission thoroughly before selecting TEN of the most genuine, most interesting, and most innovative motorcycle builds to compete in this year’s Sketchs Ink Backyard Build-Off.
